Ferran Freixa - Return to Morocco

30/07/2022 - 27/11/2022
Can Mario, Palafrugell

Exhibition opening: Saturday 30th July at 7.00 p.m.

Through a selection of photographs taken during two trips that Ferran Freixa (Barcelona, 1950–Sant Vicenç de Montalt, Barcelona, 2021) undertook to Morocco in 1987 and 1992, the XII Biennal de Fotografia Xavier Miserachs wants to pay homage to one of the most important figures of the Catalan generation of photographers in the 1970s – though not well known to the general public – and help disseminate and promote understanding of his work.

Ferran Freixa was self-taught and began his career in design, which led on to photography, a field in which he became a master of lights and shades, excelling in architectural representations and the careful and elegant compositions that give meaning and life to the most basic and simplest things and objects.

The photographs featured in this exhibition – nineteen period copies, most of which are previously unpublished – reflect a documentary approach and the spontaneity of a person who observes a place and a culture for the first time. The artist has created a meticulous travel journal in which we see, almost for the first time in his work, people as protagonists.
