“The response” sets out to present a visual narrative of the events arising following the Spanish Supreme Court’s sentencing of Catalan political prisoners.
The project covers the first actions involving the blocking of the AP-7 motorway, the burning of photos of the king, Felipe VI, on the Diagonal in Barcelona, the pro-independence and unionist demonstrations, and the disturbances in Girona and on the Via Laietana.
“The camera moves and explains the events, seeking to strike a balance between photography and social message (...). With no grand aspirations, the images take us on a journey in which we are all involved”, explains Oriol Roura.
