Indignation is in the air

Four years have passed from May 15th 2011. The 15M Indignados movement in Barcelona. It was a social movement with some political consequences at least in Spain. It begun in Madrid, but had an important replica on Barcelona, where I live.

I spent a lot of time taking pictures of the “indignados” in Barcelona around Plaza Cataluña. I took around one thousend pictures of the days that people took Plaza Catalunya to express they indignation against the crisis, politics and economic situation.

It was interesting days in town. We were living something inedit that had impact all over the world and we lived from first hand, so I went every day to talk with people and take pictures of them, living their lifes in that camp that stayed in the square for more than a month.

However, one day I realized that life happened in another plane, over my head, through the trees on the periphery of the square and I started to photograph this parallel life, oblivious not only to the city but to the 15M manifestation itself. For me this houses on the trees was the most interesing experince of which I witnessed those days and I want to share with you in my blog, Please…don’t move!

Hope you enjoy this set of pictures as much as I when I took it.15M_Barcelona_ Plaza_Cataluña_image

Ratha Yatra Festival in Barcelona-Contrast

A big city is a place of contrasts and Barcelona isn’t diferent from others in this feature.

Yesterday was the Ratha Yatra Festival in Barcelona and Hindu people in town celebrated the date with a lively  procession in honor of Krishna.

I think is a good example of Contrasts for the Weekly Photo Chalange.

Two years ago, I found the same ceremony in a rainy day. You can see the picture I hung up on Blipfoto that day

080 Barcelona fashion I

This post is the first of a series with pictures taken last week in 080Barcelona fashion. My interest in this series was the public attending the festival and not the catwalk. For catwaks there are already very good specialized photographers in fashion. My interest as usually was directed towards “natural” people in the streets.

Enjoy it.
