Ramón León Millán got his degree in Fine Arts in 1970 and holds the chair in Drawing at El Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz) since 1974. He combined teaching and drawing for decades, with some exhibitions of his oil paintings.
Ramón met the world of photography in 1980, when he found the perfect way to express his creativity. In 1987, he published his first photography book ‘Rocío: Surcos de Luz’. It was followed by other six books inspiredby Andalusian topics and landscapes: “Sevilla: Templo de Luz” (1990), “Alpujarra: Fuente de Luz” (1991), “Guadalhorce: Chorro de Luz” (1993), “Cádiz: Sierra de Luz” (1996), “Rocío: Camino y Luz” (2006), “Huelva: Serranía de Luz” (2009) and “Rocío: Jubileo de Luz” (2013).
Ramón León has done many exhibitions of photography from 1990 to 1997. The exhibition ‘Luces de Andalucía’ shines through. It was held in the Alcázar of Seville, supported by the Assessment Council of the 5th Centenary from the Universal Exhibition (1492, The Discovery of America and Seville EXPO ‘92). During 1992, the exhibition was shown in different cities and villages of Andalusia. In 2011 and 2012, he worked on the traveling exhibition ‘Alfaguara de Luz’ based on landscapes, holidays and popular customs of Andalusia. In 2013, he opened the exhibition ‘Rocío, Jubileo de Luz’ at Casa Colón in Huelva, with the support of La Caixa and the University of Huelva. This exhibition has been traveling until its recent place at Saint-Jean-de-Luz in France.
