The little mountain village of Barx nestled in the Safor mountains is a thriving community of 1300 inhabitants of all ages with a lively programme of traditional cultural and religious activities throughout the year.
Through the decades, due to its relative geographic isolation, it has become a self sufficient village which manages through its strong community and family values to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere and a high quality of life for all its citizens.
Barx, and its suburb of La Drova, has attracted a cosmopolitan range of residents who are drawn by the unspoilt and rich lifestyle this little village has to offer. It is an island of peace, tranquillity and beauty – a rare gem to be preserved and appreciated in our fast paced modern age.
Schadeberg: “This exhibition is my hommage to Barx and its people who have welcomed me so warmly and made me feel so much at home.”
