Creating Revolution: 15M through images

Documentary photography and film do not represent; indeed, no art does.  It creates perspectives of worlds, worlds, openning possibilities, ways to be in world.  The creation is but partially that of the director; there is also the unveiling eye of the camera, the constiution of realities which escape human intention, but which make possible other intentionalities, other agencies.

As the second anniversary of spain's 15M approaches, it is not without value to share some of the photography and film of the movement, both original to its emergence, and more recent endeavours.  The resonances continue …

15M gave rise to veritable explosion of images.  What follows is but a modest selection.
