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.

D’esquena al mur, el vespre es torna fang
quan cau damunt dels guixarots de plata;
a terra, lluny del cel que trenca el blanc,
retens un punt de nit just quan esclata.

D’esquena al mur, cada angle és un barranc
per on s’estimba la verdor barata
d’una herba que, amb el seu marró de sang,
una ala d’ombra fa semblar una mata.

Darrere el mur, hi ha un altre mur que espera:
acanalat, el vent que hi bufa al mig
no sap si és de record o de desig;

i el buit que deixa xucla, es fa cinglera:
d’on ve el present, quan ets d’esquena al mur?
On va el passat, quan passa per futur?

Carles Dachs

With its back to the wall, the evening turns to clay / when it falls on the silver pebbles; / on the ground, far from the sky that breaks the white, / you hold a speck of night just as it erupts. / With its back to the wall, every corner is a ravine / where falls the cheap greenery / of grass that, with its rusty blood, / a wing of shadow makes seem like a bush. / Behind the wall, another wall awaits: / grooved, the wind blowing in the middle / it does not know if it is from memory or desire; / and the void which it leaves sucks in, becomes a cliff: / where does the present come from, when you have your back to the wall? / where does the past go, when it resembles the future?
