"Survival of an Ancestral World" is a powerful photograph that is part of my Visual Anthropology project. My aim with this project is to accurately transfer to society all the knowledge and graphic documentation generated from the field of Cultural Heritage, tangible and intangible, always through photography.

This photograph highlights the importance of our most vulnerable heritage in times of uncertainty. The young woman featured in the photograph is dressed in a very old and traditional ancestral costume full of symbolism, and she is surrounded by elements from the past.

The young woman's gaze towards the light is a symbol of hope, representing a glance towards a brighter future. The traditional costume she wears is full of rich symbolism, reflecting the cultural heritage that has been passed down through generations.

Through this photograph, I want to convey a message about the importance of preserving our ancestral heritage, not only as a link to our past but also as a source of inspiration for our future. The elements surrounding the young woman in the photograph serve as a reminder of our connection to the past and the vital role it plays in shaping our future.

Overall, "Survival of an Ancestral World" is a visual representation of the fragility of our cultural heritage and the importance of preserving it for future generations. I hope this photograph inspires others to appreciate and protect our cultural heritage. This photograph is contextualized in the heart of rural Spain, specifically in the region of Sierra de Francia, located in the south of Salamanca.
