Purets's children

The one thousand and something words that are said to be worth a picture are far from enough to tell the life story of an 85-year-old person. A single man constantly engaged in pedaling a bicycle.

Let’s imagine that Joan “Purets”, starting from a village near Lleida, can little by little create a children’s exercise capable of moving the world by pedaling away.

This idea would be idyllic, but certainly this form of transport – disparaged and forgotten by society for decades – has since the social and economic crisis, in which we are still immersed, become a vital means of locomotion for many people who lack any alternative for a quick and economical way of getting around from home to their places of work or study, or even to their local job center.
