Photography: El mar, Albert Alemany, 2018


Photographic Stories is a dialogue between an image and a text. An image, created in a journalistic context, comes into the hands of a writer who, without having more information than the image itself, prepares a text. A text that highlights the poetics of the image.


Bicycles half buried in the sand. Towels stretched out in front. We had stowed the sleeping bags away, hurriedly folded, inside the backpacks, in which we had also shoved flashlights, T-shirts, and a pack of damp tobacco. Leftovers from a night of exploration in the open air. The curiosity that calls out to the flesh, satisfied for the first time under the stars. And yet I remember more vividly the morning light, the hurrying, the splashing, the shouts that accompany the leaps, and the drops of sweat that trickle down our backs as we climb the rocks. I relive it, and music that was not playing at the time comes to mind, a guitar sound that had not even been invented. It is the return of eternal summers, when you knew nothing of the walls that enclose the parentheses, and you had no idea that paradises do not exist, until they are lost.
