NOPHOTO was invited to commemorate the 25 years of the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (Railway System of the Regional Government of Valencia). The project comprises a double exhibition in Valencia and Alicante and the publication of a book.
“Moving, going from one point to another, is the consequence of a curious gaze. RED. 25 anys de FGV is an exhibition project driven by the desire to go further, which stops in the everyday and connects with a network of stories that travel through time. The destination is not as important as the journey, that place where the tale accompanying us is activated. The authors become users of the underground and travellers on the railway lines in the autonomous region of Valencia in order to convey a personal experience”. Mireia A. Puigventos
