    The Monochrome Experience: No Way!

    A smile appears drawn and someone thinks: No way! The couple practicing Chi Kung or Qi Gong, Tai Chi or some modality in the park. The subject with the package in the middle of Aragon Street. The white lines of the asphalt point towards him. Women with cell phones in another dimension of reality, the […]

    The Monochrome Experience: Planning Futures

    People do not live in the present. We are moving towards a future, as if we were going to embark on a long journey, without realizing that as passengers we are already in transit, the transit of the present. There are also those who decide to live in the past, on experiences forgetting that they […]

    The Monochrome Experience: Swing & Blood

    These spontaneous swing dancers move their bodies elegantly to the rhythm of the music. Also after dancing for a while they will donate blood doing a solidarity action. I hope that the sick recipients of their vigorous blood will dance out of the hospitals and recover at the speed of light.

    The Monochrome Experience: Whimsy Light

    The light is whimsical, fortunately. Watch this woman, down the subway scales. She wears a very radical hairstyle. Half shaved hair, with the shell (half head) in sight. And the light, as the bold hairstyle points out, illuminates just the place of the shorter hair. A form of light that is repeated under the staggered step. The other two photographs have peculiar relationships: the infused boy and the others who see him understood; the girl in the dress and the cone of circulation.

  • The Monochrome Experience: Wrapped Statues  in White Cloth and Nets

    The Monochrome Experience: Wrapped Statues in White Cloth and Nets

    Modern art visited the Columbus monument in Barcelona. A necessary restoration of the statues of the base (66 ft) wide circle, with four staircases. For me, in my humble opinion, now the statues from the buttresses and against the pedestal reach the top artistic zenith. They should always be like that: wrapped in white fabrics and knotted networks. The viewer imagines the interior they hide, emulating the artistic works of Christo Javacheff. Awesome!

  • The Monochrome Experience: Warning To The Seagulls

    The Monochrome Experience: Warning To The Seagulls

    The sea is the canvas. Seagulls paint abstract drops. 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.

  • The Monochrome Experience: Giants

    The Monochrome Experience: Giants

    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 redistribution of wealth and intrusive digital marketing.

  • The Monochrome Experience: Strange Things

    The Monochrome Experience: Strange Things

    Sometimes photographs capture strange situations. 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 old man looking inside his nose. The bike with too many wheels. One strange street with the two men below and the woman at the window (surreal environment permeates everything). The inflatable helicopter patrolling the city. The crosswalk crowded with babies in strollers…

    The Monochrome Experience: Crossed Lifes

    On a quantum level the laws of physics overflow our cartesian existence. If we imagine the subjects as quantum particles, the photographer would attend an experiment in the Nature’s laboratory.

  • The Monochrome Experience: Acrobats

    The Monochrome Experience: Acrobats

    In the sand of a beach, during the summer, you can discover acrobats of concentration, acrobats who make the vertical to read an invisible book and acrobats who perform risky somersaults driving themselves into the trunk of a tree from a shipwreck. Anything goes up.

  • Barcelona’s Multiverse

    Barcelona’s Multiverse is a term based on the possibility of another Barcelona in a universe not visible from ours. With the title of the book in English Barcelona’s Multiverse, the author Lluís Bussé (Barcelona, 1961) takes the photomontages of various emblematic locations of Barcelona, with the intention of showing the existence of another Barcelona whose laws and physical constants would be similar to ours. It is based on the theories of theoretical physicist, Max Tegmark in the Multiverse Level I. The exhibition of photographs from the book is exposed today in the Palau Robert in Barcelona (from 21 June to 11 September 2012).


    A 4.ª edição do Festival Cidades Invisíveis terá como tema Barcelona, cenário literário de A Cidade dos Prodígios de Eduardo Mendoza, autor que nos guiará numa viagem em redor da Barcelona literária lendária, mítica, fantástica e já desaparecida, para interpelarmos a Barcelona actual, através dos seus criadores contemporâneos, nas suas múltiplas formas de expressão artística.
