Jordi Batet is 55. He is from Barcelona and professional metallurgist. For some years he is a passionate photographer and for much longer a convinced separatist. He feels at the same time sadness and impotence when showing with his camera the moments we are living in Catalonia. He is not fond of street pictures, he rather likes to snap nature and more especially birds, but he couldn’t remain idle, seeing what was happening under his eyes.
Both pictures have been taken on March 23, 2018, day of the return of the Catalan politicians in jail, around half ten, near the Delegation of the Spanish government in Barcelona, more concretely between the Valence and the Roger de Lluria streets.
Given the moments we are living in Catalonia, these picture are usual. Nonviolence is the motto of the Separatists and people respect it.
