In Isla Fuerte he conducted photographic workshops and projects on the theme of crafts and island identity.

El Boga Residence
Cristian proposes to make an inventory of traditional recipes (with focal population chosen by local institutions) of the region that are falling into disuse, and that, based on their collective importance, the social cohesion they can produce, their origins and histories, the ingredients required and the relevance or urgency in the current context, one or two recipes are selected to be elaborated by their traditional knowers and installed to be immortalized in a photo-bodegon.
