New book: Bonavista, by David Mocha

The Bonavista quarter is a complex and heterogeneous territory whose origin lies in rural emigration from Andalusia and Extremadura. Located on the outskirts of Tarragona, where the city converges with the countryside, the infrastructures and the petrochemical industry, it shares the complex chaotic look of similar spaces in other cities, places that globalization has turned stereotypical and homogeneous. However, in this wasteland void of articulation, people have managed to craft a new territorial identity where their own experience has given shape to the appearance of the territory, creating new symbols that tell of their culture and stories of both the past and the present.

New book: El Frente by El Cíclope Mecánico

El Jebha (El Frente in Spanish) is a small coastal town in the foothills of the Rif Mountains of northern Morocco. Known as Puerto Capaz during the Spanish Protectorate, El Jebha is and was a privileged witness to the recent history of co-existence between Spain and Morocco.

Set up in 2006, El Cíclope Mecánico is a group of people working together in order to organize and develop projects and activities related to photography and image.

In 2012 it decided to tackle its first project as a group, creating El Frente and participating in the 19th edition of the Beca FotoPres of the Fundacion La Caixa. Current components of the group and authors of this project are Arturo Andújar, Maru Capón, Sergio Castañeira, Manolo Espaliú and Sergio Flores.
