Today, our Photography Workshop participants were surprised by a public and pacific demonstration of hundreds of people claiming for real democracy in Spain. All kinds of people went out on the streets to express their discomfort about bank speculation, and the result of the recent elections.
Spain does not accept anymore the constant abuse that banks, big corporations and private capital realtors make over the population.
Later on the police would take by brutal force demonstrators from Plaça Catalunya, Barcelona´s main square, beating them and using gas and brutality to stop them from expressing their discomfort.
the final presentation of Photojournals and Photo essays was an exciting moment, most of us had worked for about a month, thinking, planning sketching and drafting ideas around those topics we wanted for our essay.
Different things showed up, as groups of images made sense aroun pink& feminity, Numbers, Doors,Mini Graffiti and People´s backs.Amazed to discover each of us point of view, and the variety of things happening out in the streets.
