Manolo Laguillo "Diagonal", 1988-1989


Peripheral zones, industrial areas, industrial estates... Since the late 1970s, photographer Manolo Laguillo has documented the solitary areas of Barcelona: construction sites, spaces without pedestrians, the avenida Diagonal without cars, the empty port, the great Olympic facilities in the Vall d'Hebron, silent factories... Always in black and white, his photographs expose the poetics and beauty of urban silence. As the title of one of his series says, even in moments of pause the city reveals its status as a ‘living organism’.
