1000 PORTRAITS BARCELONA
two photographers • one camera • one weekend • a thousand people
If we think about the great cities that make up the social imaginary, their emblematic buildings, monuments and places will quickly come to our minds … But this is only the inert part of the cities, great cities are made by the people living there, inhabiting its public spaces.
Through this experience we want to express one of the many possible representations of the city of Barcelona, with its inhabitants as the main characters this time. .
For a weekend we walked through the streets of the city, explaining the project and asking people to collaborate in it, until we completed 1000 portraits.
The project is original to the city of London by the photographers: Eamon Lane and Carlo Nicora. We wanted to continue the project transferring it to Barcelona with the intention that by extending it to other cities, it becomes a global project, capable of explaining the large capitals through the portraits of the people that live in them.
We encourage you to leave comments on the images in Flickr, and of course if you recognize yourself, we will send you a copy.
We want to thank all the people that made this project possible, as much to the ones that appear as to the ones that did not.
Thank you very much to everyone for making this possible.
