Бартcелона pop up 147 at Radison Collection Hotel Old Mill Belgrade
“Inspired by” is the first part of a big Project inspired by some artists, mainly by the painter Balthus, and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, also with the influence of such painters as Edward Hopper, who has an effect on all my works, and one of my favorite photographers, Alex Pragger, along with Philip-Lorca di Corcia. This is also my closest approach to Fashion photography. I got first into Fashion photography around 1995 while I was working, for 2 years, in a Levi’s Store first and after in one of the best multi-brand stores of Barcelona. I was impressed with the awarded Diesel Italian Fashion Brand catalogs. I was collecting all of them. They always show the models in a kind of Surrealist relations with their environment, and I’ve always been fascinated by Surrealism. In general, in my photographs and not only in portraits, but also landscapes, objects or architecture photography you can feel the solitude, loneliness, boredom, melancholia and something that feels very Balkanic to me, the resignation. In the series presented in the Radisson Collection Hotel, as part of Бартcелона pop up 147 project, you see two persons in every image, and even if they interact, they are isolated within themselves. This exhibition is the first step, the next ones will have names and surnames.” David Pujadó, author
Бартселона концепт is a photography platform without limits, without borders, without rules, but with a common language – the photogpraphy, founded on August 2014 by David Pujadó. On October 2018 Бартселона POP UP and Бартселона inked were founded down the umbrella of Бартселона концепт, coworking with the already existing Бартселона gallery. From December 2018 they started a regular collaboration with the Radisson Collection Hotel, Old Mill Belgrade creating Бартселона POP UP 147. Бартселона POP UP has an exhibition room, always the same one – 147, where they organize photography exhibitions. Result of the collaboration of this project was part of the last edition of the Festival Belgrade Photo Month.
