Summary
"Habitat" explores the idea that Andy Warhol already let emerge in 1963 in his series "Car Crash", perhaps an element as loved, appreciated, and idealized as the car was a bad idea or a death trap for the user as Warhol proposed and perhaps it is also for humanity considering the polluting emissions it produces.

Es un gran placer mi exposición individual en el marco del XVII Festival de la Imagen de Calella (Barcelona). 

El FESTIMATGE es un festival de gran reconocimiento y prestigio nacional e internacional, un magnífico punto de encuentro para amantes de la fotografía y del cine, atraídos por las exposiciones fotográficas de autores reconocidos a nivel nacional e internacional con todo tipo de estilos y propuestas. Un gran placer participar con mi proyecto “Hábitat”en la edición de este año 2022.

El Festival cuenta con un amplio recorrido y es también organizador del famoso concurso Internacional Trofeo Torretes de fotografía.
Todo mi agradecimiento a la organización, FotoFilm Calella y el Ayuntamiento de Calella,  los colaboradores la Diputación de Barcelona y el departamento de cultura de Generalitat de Cataluña.

Una gran alegría que esta propuesta, esta reflexión sobre los problemas sociales y ambientales que amenazan nuestro planeta sea difundida desde este estupendo marco.

Os dejo enlace al programa del festival donde podréis ver todas las exposiciones y actividades programadas en el evento.

Habitat.

In just over a century of life the automobile has revolutionized our way of life, shaping cities, work practices, the economy, leisure, culture, social life and the environment in a radical and dangerous way.
"Habitat" explores the idea that Andy Warhol already let emerge in 1963 in his series "Car Crash", perhaps an element as loved, appreciated, and idealized as the car was a bad idea or a death trap for the user as Warhol proposed and perhaps it is also for humanity considering the polluting emissions it produces.
In the current moments in which an end of stage is glimpsed in relation to mobility driven by fossil fuels, "Habitat" seeks to surface the contradiction and contrast between the beautiful forms with polished and shiny surfaces of the internal elements of the explosion engine with the incessant flow, through them, of poisonous and harmful elements for the planet.
The engineer designed these elements to solve a problem, with a clear utility: the transformation in motion of the energy accumulated in fossil fuels. On the contrary, "Habitat" frees these elements from their meaning, from their usefulness, turning them into elements of intention and communication.
