Twentysix Abandoned Catalan Gasoline Stations


Apart from an obvious homage to Ed Ruscha's 1962 seminal artist book, this project is the result of a six-year long treasure hunt in which I challenged myself to find as many derelict gas stations as I could in my native Catalonia (for those who don't know, an area in the Northeast of the Iberian Peninsula that is slightly bigger than Belgium).
