Barcelona, irregular borders

From the portfolio "Barcelona bordes irregulares" by Rosario Kuri (2012).

Barcelona bordes irregulares [see photos][read text] is a photoreportage by Rosario Kuri (2012) that draws a casual drift for the peripheries, breaking the image of Barcelona’s postcards and expressing the diversity of landscapes and people that form the city. La Rabassada o l’utopia de l’oci burgués [webpage] is a book published by Turiscòpia (2012) about the bourgeois casino on the Tibidabo mountain, at the beginning of the XX century.
