Fotografia 1973-2013


This exhibition allows us to visit the extensive photographic work of Ferran Freixa, from his beginnings as an artist until the present. Most of the images are original period photographic prints produced by Freixa himself from analog negatives.

Ferran Freixa’s photographs, intimate and poetic, become an authentic allegory of the passing of time and constitute an extraordinary witness that enhances the urban cultural heritage in the process of disappearing, a record of its destruction. Visually and graphically, the style of this photographer is aesthetically impeccable and draws each atmosphere in a precise and balanced way, in a symphony of lights and shadows.

 

Ferran Freixa (Barcelona, 1950)

Is one of the most important photographers of the sixties, a generation that represented the second photographic vanguard. His specialisation in architecture marked his photographic work for its accuracy of setting and balanced compositions. Since 1973 he has had numerous exhibitions in Europe, United States and Asia, and his personal work is part of public and private collections.

This exhibition was produced in 2013 by Centre d’Art Tecla Sala from L’Hospitalet de Llobregat. It meant the first retrospective of the artist and resumed 40 years of work, with silent and extremely refined photographies, fruit of a true autobiographical dimension.

The exhibition has been curated by Josep Rigol

Location: Sala de l’Estrella, Carrer del carme, 3, Vilassar de Dalt.
