Jil Love Selected For Photos Of The Year And Day By Major Publications
Jil’s image is starting to get around to where it matters; the Wall Street Journal.
My Artivism in Barcelona for the independence of Catalonia and the right of Catalans to vote for their future in November 9th 2014. Spain is very afraid of losing us and doesn’t allow us to vote because they know the mass majority will say yes to Independence. This is the same process Scotland is going through but with the big difference that England allow them to vote.
I tied hands and feet, and with a plastic bag over my head I symbolized the economical, cultural, linguistic and identity suffocation of Catalonia by Spain. Unexpectedly this image became an icon not only in Catalonia but around the world. It is a powerful image that speaks volumes. In the same day it was cover photo in major Spanish News Papers, photo of the day of the Washington Post and some months after it was among the best photos of the year 2014.
