els Catalans

Technically part of Spain, Catalunya is bounded on the east by the Mediterranean Sea, on the north by
France and Andorra, and on the west and south by the Spanish regions of Aragon and Valencia.  This
autonomous nation possesses notable geographical diversity within a relatively small area.  Catalunya
has more than 7 million inhabitants (Catalans) all contributing to a very unique culture; with its own
government, language, traditions, architecture and cuisine.  The internationally known city of Barcelona
is its capital.

“Upon taking two trips in 1 year to Catalunya, it became apparent that I was photographing an intriguing
and culturally rich area of the world.  Cultural pride is very evident simply by walking the streets and
listening to locals speak.  Historically, Catalans have had to fight to keep their identity.  I was most
fascinated by their creative window displays and intricate wrought iron work on their balconies."  This
exhibition was inspired by the manner in which I saw artists in el Raval display their work.  

Tècnicament part d’Espanya, Catalunya limita a l'est amb la Mediterrània, al nord amb França i Andorra,
i a l'oest i al sud amb les comunitats autònomes d'Aragó i València.  És un país d’una diversitat geogràfica
molt marcada, contingut en un territori relativament reduït.  Catalunya té més de set milions d'habitants (catalans)
que formen una identitat cultural característica, amb el seu propi govern, llengua, tradicions, arquitectura i
cuina.  La ciutat de Barcelona, reconeguda internacionalment, n’és la capital.

"Després de viatjar dos cops en un mateix any a Catalunya, se’m va fer evident que estava fotografiant una
àrea del món intrigant i culturalment molt rica.  Passejant pels seus carrers i escoltant la gent es fa palès
l’orgull que senten els catalans per la seva cultura i tradicions.  Històricament, els catalans han hagut de
lluitar per defensar i mantenir la seva identitat.  Vaig quedar fascinat per la creativitat dels aparadors
dels comerços i la complexitat de les balconades de ferro forjat."  Aquesta exposició està inspirada en la
manera en que els artistes del Raval penjen les seves obres.  
All photographs from this particular series are pigment prints printed by the
photographer on cotton rag.  Each is titled, signed, dated, numbered, and
matted using archival acid-free white matting, mounting, and backing
materials.
