National Geographic - Solar Portraits

Solar energy can make a huge difference for people living in places that are not connected to the electricity grid. Rubén Salgado Escudero shows this in his series Solar Portraits.

In all the locations where he worked, solar energy has been used for some time. Everywhere he asks the same question, not as a journalist but as an artist: how has solar energy changed your life? He captures the answer in almost magical-realistic images with solar panels, power lines and LED lamps in unexpected places as recurring elements.
