Photography exhibition CARES/ FACES september '06 paca busquets
In September, during the local "fiestas", Paca Busquets' show gave an extraordinary start to our exhibitions agenda. The show consisted of a series of BW portraits of the people in the village, taken from paca's point of view from behind the counter of her family's bar. The show became a meeting point for people to see their and other people's images, and sometimes tell the odd story. The pictures reflect paca's natural directness and sympathy. It was the people's response that led us to extend the project to the publishing of a book of the photographs accompanied by stories, thus creating a great social portrait of the village. More on this subject later!
