Publisher's presentation :

"Salitre :
1. Saline Substance, particularly abundant in soil and walls
2. When sailing, the mixture of sweat and salt that sticks to the skin
3. Lavapiés Street (Madrid) where twelve Senegalese immigrants lives in an overcrowded house
4. Collective photography and publishing experience resulting in a box of 12 + 1 books

The box contains 12+1 books, one made by each of the twelve inhabitants featuring their photographs, drawings, words and documents (ID cards, passports, official letters, papers…). and the thirteenth book explaining the project with some texts and images taken exclusively by Juan Valbuena inside the overcrowded house until its eviction (interiors, portraits, objects, daily life…).

Twelve 16-page booklets and one 80-page book, housed in a semi-rigid illustrated cardboard box.

Project directed and edited by Juan Valbuena; limited edition of 100 copies.

272 pages (total) - 13 booklets in box
