MISERACHS' BARCELONA ON SHOW AT THE MACBA
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.
