' Sota la llum del mar ' (Under the light of the sea) is a photographic essay that aims to dignify the victims of Francoism in Spain during the Civil War and after the war . The project is based on the story of the little brother of the photographer's grandfather, Tomàs Pons Albesa, who was shot at the Camp de la Bota in Barcelona in 1941 at the age of 31.
In order to follow this story, Espe Pons has visited the places that Tomàs visited during the last moments of his life and has compiled information from the time related to the case with the aim of reconstructing a history that has been fragmented until now .
The work is accompanied by two texts, one by Vicenç Altaió , a writer, poet and essayist, and a text by Cynthia Young , curator of the Robert Capa Archive at the International Center of Photography in New York. The texts can be read in three languages: Catalan, Spanish and English.
Pages: 132 Format: 21 x27.5 cm Binding: Softcover Language: Catalan, Spanish and English.
