La Boqueria is the most famous market in Barcelona around the world. The city center beats every day, with more than 200 vendors for their blinds, smells, meals and cuisine. A festival for the senses… This is the other entrance.
The sea is the canvas. The torso man is a white spot. The woman with the sunglasses and the enigmatic smile, the time. The needles of the horizon obey a certain order and a warning to the seagulls: do not rest here, or you will prick the feathers.
Photographing giants is a festive activity that modifies our human scale. We are insignificant if we compare ourselves with them. They dance and wear their best clothes. It is something magnificent that allows us to daydream and forget the gear of wealth redistribution and the intrusive digital marketing.

Seeing the world on the shoulders of the father or mother is a wonderful thing. Some of us hardly remember the beautiful views, there, in the heights. These privileged views only run for a short period. Because the boy or girl grows and gain weight, which contributes to abandon childhood in some way and enter the territory of reality. Parents are no longer giants and little ones have become teenagers.
Sometimes photographs capture strange situations. The inflatable helicopter patrolling the city. A bike that looks like a motorcycle. A woman with sunglasses who put her hand on her forehead so as not to be blinded by light. The crosswalk crowded with babies in strollers…
At fairs the photographer has the opportunity to capture unusual lights, dizzying situations and images of suggestive rarity. There are frightening attractions with terrified screaming teenagers, noise, smells, clouds of artificial gas and the smell of fast food. But everyone, children, parents and older people have a great time.
