Photographic project by Carles Palacio
“Polvorines” begins as a work of denunciation and documentation of one of the most unknown and marginalized neighborhoods of Girona: Las Canteras or Diseminado los Capuchinos. The one-year photoreport has been published in several formats in La Directa and in Somatenes.
Under the communications antenna of the “Pirulí” is located the neighborhood, formed by a clan of gypsy ethnicity. A community that for a long time lives socially isolated from the rest of the city of Girona. Many municipal governments have promised neighbors improvements and services that the rest of the neighborhoods have had for years, such as street lighting or the urban bus, but none of the governments has completed it.
This project received the prize of young photographers of the Center of the Image of Diputación de Girona (INSPAI) and has been exposed to the Visa Off of Perpignan, VICC City of Catalan Culture or the FineArt of Igualada among others.
