PERE VIRGILI: CONFUSION, SOUL AND THE ENGINE ON THE RING-ROAD
by David Castillo

Virgili, a young photographic reporter and yet none the less a veteran, has on this occasion chosen to offer us, instead of his usual personal portraits and reporting, the sort of breakneck movement in which it is difficult to think at a normal speed. Speed on a motorbike, an equation that blends soul, the engine and confusion. These photographs were taken on one of the great works of modern Barcelona: the ring-road that surrounds the city like a huge snake.
