Carta abierta al fotógrafo Txema Salvans y al British Journal of Photography sobre el reportaje  ‘The Waiting Game’

Hagamos un ejercicio de imaginación: Piensa que eres un panadero, que hace su pan tranquilamente a las cinco de la mañana en la soledad de tu cocina, vas a por  harina y… bum! Al apartar un saco te encuentras a un desconocido que, sin que tú le hayas dado permiso, ha estado fotografiando tu intimidad en nombre del arte. ¿Te gustaría? ¿Verdad que hubieras preferido que antes te hubieran preguntado?

Ahora cambia panadero por prostituta en una carretera de, por ejemplo, La Jonquera. Y en lugar de imaginarlo, ten la certeza de que ha ocurrido. Que un fotógrafo llamado Txema Salvans (http://www.txemasalvans.com/cas/index.html) se ha pasado seis años fotografiando a las trabajadoras sexuales de España a escondidas y que ahora publica su trabajo en el prestigioso British Journal of Photography (http://www.bjp-online.com/2015/08/txema-salvans-clandestine-photos-of-prostitutes-waiting-for-clients-on-the-side-of-spanish-highways/), que encima, alaba su método. ¿Cómo te hace sentir?
