This book is a facsimile edition of the album that Joan Colom gave to his friend, Josep Mª Casademont, a forerunning art gallery owner and photography critic, in 1973. The original 27.3 x 29.6 cm album contains 76 vintage photographs taken by the author himself.
The images in this album were captured by Joan Colom around Barcelona’s Raval neighbourhood, between 1958 and 1964. They form part of his emblematic Gente de la Calle (People from the streets) series, which has become not just a chronicle of life in the neighbourhood at that time, but also a true story of human spirit.
Today, the album is part of the Foto Colectania Collection.
