Obscure, obsolete, forgotten (II)

Between 2007 and 2011 I visited and photographed in an almost obsessive manner all kinds of abandoned places in Catalonia. What follows is a second selection (you can see the first one I posted here) of the shots I took in these...

Jetlagged in California

According to Wikipedia, jet lag is “a physiological condition which results from alterations to the body’s circadian rhythms resulting from rapid long-distance transmeridian (east–west or west–east) travel on high-speed aircraft”. I can say without a doubt that I have never suffered so much from jet lag as in November 2008, when I traveled to California with my girlfriend. The time difference between Barcelona and...

Strip Up Strip Down

Las Vegas Boulevard South, also known as The Strip, is a 6 km avenue where we can find the vast majority of hotels, casinos and entertainment venues of the city of Las Vegas, Nevada (USA). Usually described as a theme park for adults, Las Vegas is also a tribute to kitsch and excess, a world wide mecca for hedonists and a paradigm of the wildest contrasts of the so-called American Dream. These photographs were taken in August, 2014....

Drifting through the mist

One morning I loaded my camera and half a dozen rolls of film into my car and took the highway heading west. I wanted to visit an abandoned gas station that I had previously located to hopefully take a few good photos. However, once I got out of the tunnel of El Bruc I was surprised by a very thick mist. And from that moment I completely forgot about the damn gas station.   All the photographs in this series were taken on...

Southern Exposure (III)

Do you know that joke about a Catalan guy who walked the empty streets of a mountain town in Almeria with a camera hanging from his neck? “Southern Exposure” is a project I started in 2011 which documents on medium format negative film the landscapes, animals and (exceptionally) the people I have found in different trips to the Andalusian provinces of Almeria and Granada. You can see the previous posts of this series...
