DescriptionDrakcelona is the culmination of a photographic project initiated in 2007 and whose 1st stage is the book "Drakcelona, City of Dragons" by Josep Martinez and published by Arola Editors in 2011.
The idea of looking and establish a benchmark and visual aesthetic of the city led Josep Martinez to a search and seizure, throughout the city, the mythological animal par excellence: the dragon.
Thus, for over 4 years, he has been capturing all the dragons of the city of Barcelona that have crossed his camera. Today there are nearly five hundred. All different, all local. Nowhere in the world, the dragon is this profuse variety, the result is Drakcelona.
Drakcelona are routes in Barcelona where dragons show us the city, its natural territory for many centuries: Drakopolis Barcino, Urbs Drakones or City of Dragons
