Photography: Albert Llimós. Baixada de Mulats d’Espinavell. October 2018.

Good stories are full of details.
Important details are found through careful observation.
In order to observe carefully, you must expand the image, turning yourself into an implacable and patient detective?.

Zoom in:
Under the muzzle of the first horse. A girl looks through the screen of a digital camera. Who uses digital cameras in a world of smartphones? Behind her, a man is watching her, also crouched down, and from the position he takes, it seems as if he is about to jump on her.

Zoom in:
Behind the line of spectators is a lone girl; blue anorak, arms folded. She has her head turned and, unlike everyone else, is not watching the animal show; she gives a serious stare directly at the camera lens, challenging those who stare at the photo.

Zoom in:
Among the group, just behind a family sitting on the ground. A woman, her posture tense, looks intently at her mobile phone; either receiving or sending a message. Something serious, disturbing, worrying.

Zoom out:
Three straight lines join the three protagonists and form a curious triangle.
Stories. Details. Observations.
