foto inauguracio mostra cens de terresYesterday, Sunday December 18, the Formentera Council's Office of Agriculture invited islanders to come out for the opening of Farmland Reserve, a year in photos at la Mola's Casa del Poble. Following exhibition at the municipal gallery in Sant Francesc, the stop in la Mola is aimed at bringing the show to many of the protagonists that constitute it. CiF president Jaume Ferrer and rural affairs councillor Bartomeu Escandell were joined at the event by other officials and residents of the area.

Eva Parey's collection of photos focusses on the maiden year of a project known as Cens de Terres de Cultiu (roughly translatable as “farmland reserve”). The initiative, which the Council has undertaken together with the local farmers' co-operative, is designed to revive Formentera's primary sector and conserve local landscapes. A video was screened during the presentation which paired a review of the previous year's work with poetry from Marià Villangómez and music from UC and Aires Formenterencs.
