Albert Puntí is a Photographer from Barcelona. In one of his projects he shows well known buildings of his native city in ruins.
On his website he writes about this series: "This project’s aim is to reflect upon the fragility of human projects, and comes from two different ideas. Firstly, the idea that our civilization (as any previous civilization) will come to an end and, secondly, at a formal level, the treatment of ruins in romantic painting. In the 18th century, many painters aiming to improve their knowledge of Greek and Roman civilizations, traveled across different European cities, documenting the remains of these civilizations. In this project I have used the same three elements as them: ruins– vegetation- painter, with one key difference, which is the originality of this work: here, the traveler does not admire the remains of a previous civilization, but travels to the future to see what is left of his own."
