Summer snaps 2012 from Barcelona
On my last visit to Barcelona I sadly lost my Pentax Spotmatic II. This new set marks my first return to BCN with a new (exactly the same) model in tow,though it has a slightly different character! And, there were similarly sunny skies.
There were some remarkable architectural shows at MACBA, plus Martin Parr 'Souvenir' exhibition at the Centre de Cultura lulled me into a revision of what it means to document a trip, how I might alter a moment or frame a situation differently in order to fully celebrate the 'holiday'. I also considered what it means to lose something of sentimental value on a trip, and in the particular case of a camera with memories it secures through photographs - how I returned to subconsciously recreate something of that previous experience. This time without any material loss!
