MISERACHS' BARCELONA ON SHOW AT THE MACBA

The Pullman Magazine - - Places & People To Love -

Barcelona is the world’s third most pho­tographed city, hot on the heels of New York and Rome. Yet the tourist city we know and love looked very dif­fer­ent back in the Six­ties. In­spired by the work of Wil­liam Klein, pho­to­jour­nal­ist and ad­ver­tis­ing pho­tog­ra­pher Xavier Miserachs has ex­plored his city through a dif­fer­ent lens, un­veil­ing its more raw and in­dus­trial side.

The black and white im­ages cap­ture sea-side fac­to­ries, passers-by and the gaze of the Cata­lan peo­ple. Snap­shots of life, pro­jected onto walls and blur­ring the lines be­tween re­al­ity and fic­tion, with par­tic­u­larly clever stag­ing and a care­fully com­piled sound­track in­stantly whisks vis­i­tors back to the Plaça Catalunya of the Six­ties. The ex­hi­bi­tion is sched­uled to run un­til March 27 2016 at Barcelona’s MACBA in the Plaça dels An­gels.
