Most of my work has no rational motivation; I simply felt it had to be made. Street
photography was also driven by this inexplicable need, but time has added a
conviction: “our time and place should be portrayed”.
This certainty was born in front of Joan Colom’s photos. There was a contrast
between his photos and my eyes, that of transcendence. He photographed El Raval a
great deal then. The link “my place” versus “another time” is the key to
understanding the importance of street photography.
