I came across a small selection of Txema Salvans' photographs in next months BJP (January 2014) and was immediately taken by them,
they worked on a number of levels and looking at them without first reading the text I assumed they showed people waiting for a bus
or the arrival of someone. All became clear when I read the article and was even more impressed (if that's the right word) when he explained
how he managed to capture the images, unposed, and with the implied permission of the women.

The Waiting Game - Txema Salvans.

The Waiting Game gathers a series of photographs taken by Txema Salvans in the course of six years along the Mediterranean coastline of Spain. It forms a striking tableau of necessity and desire, with concept and visual expression fitting perfectly together. The essence of the work is an exploration of the varied and often surprising gamut of human longings and behaviors.

Txema photographed the exercise of prostitution along the roads and highways in its actual context: the intersections and roundabouts, the dead-end street of the polygons, the shoulders of the road. Marginal places that provide the setting for an activity as over-exposed as prostitution.
