  • About the artwork

    "I was born in San Sebastián but my surname, Cazenave, is of Gascon origin and it is very widespread in the three provinces of the North of the Basque Country. During the winter of 2010 I travelled the way of my ancestors, from their birthplace in the Bearne, down to the sea.

    I traced this territory searching for the people whose last name was also Cazenave. They guided me through a way which served me to get to know my origins, discover the North of my country and also to find myself.

    The interest of this work lies in the search process through Iparralde (Northern Basque Country) and not so much in finding those origins. I met people with the same surname as mine and they became the guides to discover my country. From then on I have elaborated a personal story which is intimately linked to the territory."

Jon Cazenave

Born in: 1978


Jon Cazenave receives his B.A. in Economic Sciences from the University of Deusto in 2001 and, after working for 5 years in the finance world, he decides to move to Barcelona to study photography (2006). He began deepening in documentary photography as a mean to capture and register the contemporary world and decided to complete his studies with Pep Bonet, Christopher Anderson and Paolo Pellegrin, after having been selected to participate in the first Magnum Workshop taking place in Oslo. Since then, he has been developing a long-term research project called Galerna. This work phocuses on the idiosyncrasy and aesthetics of the Basque Country with an anthropological perspective, using the cultural sign and symbol in close relation to the contemporary creation.
