    This series is a tribute to the public lighting produced with sodium-vapor lamps, that is being replaced by more sustainable sources.

    I find its transforming effect of the urban space particularly attractive. The effect of suppression of most of the color palette create scenes of a totally distorted appearance. I find interesting to observe that its ubiquity has produced that we are so used to it that it produces on us the impression of being able to capture the lost colors, probably due to our knowledge of the reality under other sources of light.

    The photographs have been taken in a holiday development belonging to the Sierra de Madrid. The place, which I know well, was chosen because its recreational character contrasts strongly with the merely utilitarian use of the sodium-vapor lighting.
