Jorge Ribalta / Renaissance

December 05, 2015 14 February 2016

Following Ribalta’s series Sierra Minera — created in 2010 in Murcia, Spain, exploring the La Unión mining region, which has been remade into a centre of flamenco culture — the Renaissance project takes the form of a tour of the industrial monuments of Nord – Pas-de-Calais. This project is based on photographic observation of a number of sites in the region, making up significant documentation of the “renaissance” of these industrial landscapes, which are becoming monuments, museums or theme parks.
