pessoas contra muros

Prison is the only place where power is manifested in its naked state, in its most excessive form, and where it is justified as moral force.
Michel Foucault

Photojournalistic work around Spanish prisons. Seen from outside. It is the result of reports made over several years (2014-2018) in marches organised by social movements. It is a portrait of the dispersion suffered by people imprisoned for political reasons, in this case Galician pro-independence activists. A feeling of resistance; against the walls, like little sparks in front of extermination centers.
