Barcelona in fifty faces
The City of the People of Craigie Horsfield
Torre Baró, carrer Provença, Major de Sarrià, Doctor Dou, Muntaner, Boters, Passeig de Gràcia, Pau Claris… The City of the People is a photographic project undertaken by Craigie Horsfield in 1996 in Barcelona. In strict black and white, he portrayed fifty city dwellers. Some anonymous, others well known, women, men, young, old... identities of individuals and communities that shape the human landscape of the metropolis. The project, conceived as an alternative to the official image of Barcelona, focused especially on the three peripheral neighbourhoods of Ciutat Meridiana, Vallbona and Torre Baró. The result is a visual tribute to citizens who make up the real city.
