Txema Salvans exhibition in Juan Naranjo Gallery
Terrain vague of desire, photography and prostitution 1963-2013
Terrain vague of desire, photography and prostitution 1964-2013 has been divided into two exhibitions: The waiting game and Terrain vague of the desire , shown by the photographs and the photobooks of Txema Salvans and Joan Colom, creators of two of the most important works that have been made around photography and prostitution.
Terrain vague of desire
It is composed of a set of photographs that Joan Colom took in the Chinatown (El Raval) of Barcelona in the late 1950s and early 1960s that escape technically and conceptually from the production of the moment in Spain. These photographs were published on the Izas, Rabizas and Colipoterras photo book by Lumen, Barcelona, 1964, with text by the writer Camilo José Cela. The exhibition is complemented by other photographs and documents dealing with this subject.
