Las Afueras (The Outskirts) is a photo-documentary that portrays the young community growing up in the outskirts of a dormitory city, focusing on their feeling of uncertainty about the future. The Spanish government and the media declare an economic recovery in Europe, but everyday life does not change for the working class youth. Jobs are temporary and precarious, and this is pushing young people to emigrate. Las Afueras looks beyond the false narratives presented by the government propaganda and the media, by documenting the reality of the working-class young community in Iviasa. The older locals refer to it as 'the neighbourhood of the cemetery'.
