Blank - collectors edition
Year 2011. In a context of a global economic crisis partly caused by banks, they began a process of massive closure of their offices characterized by painting their crystals white before leaving the place. The windows became opaque, an ironic metaphor for the way many financial institutions work. The white color, in western culture traditionally associated with values such as purity and beauty, acquired in this case a negative value.
BLANK is the result of 6 years of work, including photographs made by Josep Maria de Llobet between 2013 and 2014 in the city of Barcelona. After being exhibited at the DOCfield 2016 and Revela-T 2017 Photography festivals, and after going through various editing processes, we are very proud to publish this body of work in the form of a limited edition collector's book-object.
