As we talkedwe touredthe old building.I loveexploringthe spacesand heknowsevery inchof the place,wasan amazing guide. I remember formidable spacesand stairs, roofs, walkways, whiteclassrooms, libraries.Laterwe thake look to somephotos and we recognizedin severalideas. This summerI returned toBarcelona.Had coffeewithPere and Romá. He surprised mewith thisbook, whereamong other things, talks aboutLove on the wall photos. Obviously,Romárealizedthe truth,and I lovehow he say it:Love on thewall photosare falselycold. Yes.
I like,I’m toched about him callto action, I like thethrillof the actioninhis young students, Ireallylike his claimand validation of theburied historyof his country.The clarityof mind that acountry withfear,which eraseshis pastcan notmakejust lawsandact accordingly.Without fear ofinconveniencinglashesand declaresthe death ofphotojournalism,arturgency,despises forced aestheticdiscoursesand machismo. He isdirectand acerbic, shakes us. Calls to move,to keep us awakeandalert, readyfor action. Thank you,thank you very much.I love yourtext in Altresmiradessobre l’art, it’swindy, so dissipatesthe fog of the mainstream.It is an honorto walkover there.
