"Instant Village" / OpenPHoto 2014
Collaboration. Rumanian Cultural Institute and PHotoEspaña 2014. June 2014
Thrilled to collaborate with the Rumanian Cultural Institute in the exhibition of the work "Instant Village" by Simona Rota, as part of the OpenPHoto Section of PHotoEspaña 2014. The series is a photographic survey of different types of housing in the Canary Islands. Because they are almost wholly dependent on tourism, the islands have faced growing planning pressure, from the 1960s to the recent bursting of the property bubble, which provides a perfect example of the problems faced by Spain as a whole. It was a pleasure to work with Rota and to collaborate with the RCI. I would like to express my gratitude to Raluca Doroftei, coordinator of the exhibition.
