El Raval (by Joan Colom)

Intuitivo y con la cámara semioculta, Joan Colom, captó de forma testimonial lo cotidiano de un barrio pintoresco. Unas imágenes que vistas hoy nos dan una mirada objetiva de la transformación cultural que a vivido el Raval. Aunque el Barrio Chino fue, durante la fiebre del oro de la Gran Guerra, un barrio bohemio de artistas y cabarés, Colom nos muestra el Barrio Chino de la posguerra y el franquismo, que evoca la vida popular, la pobreza, la prostitución… Descifra sus secretos y su esencia, de ahí la magia de sus fotografías, puesto que se disuelven con la vida misma, con una mirada libre y sutil, callejeando.

Intuitive and with a half hidden camera, Joan Colom, captured the everyday witness of a picturesque neighborhood. Images that view today give us an objective view of the cultural transformation that has lived the Raval. Although Chinatown was, during the gold rush of the Great War, a bohemian neighborhood of artists and cabarets, Colom shows us Chinatown after the war and the Franco regime, which evokes popular life, poverty, prostitution… Decodes its secrets and its essence, hence the magic of his photographs, since dissolved with life itself, with a free look and subtle, wondering.
