Barcelona mercats 1969-1994
Extended until Nov.28tn 2015
We are faced with a solid, long-standing photographer —a true hunter of the critical moment. Jordi Pol (Barcelona, 1949) has been wandering around his hometown, looking for one-of-a-kind photographs. Thus he has documented the Barcelona of the last third of the Twentieth century. Pure photographic memory.
This exhibition displays his gaze on the various city markets—from money in La Borsa (1970) to food in La Boqueria (1969), crafts and traditions in Fira de Santa Llúcia (1969), or a second opportunity for books and culture in the Mercat de Sant Antoni (1994).
The production of these series has been personally conducted by the author, and the prints are his very own work (on Ilford Multigrade FB Glossy Warmtone photographic paper) to a size of 30x40 cm, using his Leica Ic Focomat enlarger.
