The fact that a journalist of the written press, an editor for more than thirty years, suddenly starts writing with pictures, taking photos, can only mean two things: either he is gone mad or the world has been so reversed that it is not recognizable anymore.
Jordi Panyella (Barcelona, 1966) is still writing in the newspaper El Punt Avui, as he always has, but the world has now changed radically. And specially in his city, following the brutal impact of the crisis of the Covid-19.
Through a story woven with images taken during two months of confinement, Barcelona 2020 unfolds the every day life in the city, this wonderful city, its streets and its people during a unique spring, empty of life, full of fear and horror, struggles and hope.
It is the visual chronicle of a historic event that will determine a whole generation. It is a unique story, full of emotions, the graphic testimony of unrepeatable days.
