Blank, by Josep Maria de Llobet

Barcelona

In the middle of this global economic crisis (caused mainly by the banks), lots of bank offices were closed down.

They used to paint windows with white paint before leaving, so windows became a metaphor for the opacity with which many financial institutions operate.

The colour white has been traditionally associated with purity and beauty, but here it obtains negative connotations. In these images we only see windows.

There is no context, so any window is no longer part of a landscape but an object that has become a symbol of failure.

Josep Maria, a photographer specializing in architecture and a professor of photography, his work focuses on the transformation of the urban environment and has been exhibited in various festivals and halls in Spain and France.
