After years focusing and shooting naturally contrasted shadows and saturated colors while working on The Straw Conspiracy project, I felt the need to explore a radically different technique. What about flash by day? Flash by day always fascinated me.
I still wanted to focus on telling a local yet universal story.
I started to spend time on Plaça de Catalunya, the main central square in Barcelona. It’s always crowded with pigeons and humans, the latter being a delicate mix of both local families having a break with small kids running wild around the feathered creatures, and tourists seemingly following this strange and unwritten rule I still cannot really grasp: “Wherever you go, you ought to feed the local population of city pigeons and take a picture of the moment. You’d preferably share it in your social media afterwards”.
