I used a Nikon D90 with a 18-55 mm zoom and a 180 mm f. 2.8. And of course, I shot in jpg format.
Ah! Very important. I bring from home a ladder and I carried on the subway back and forth.
I took this picture in September 11th of 1976 in Sant Boi, an eternity ago. It was the first massive political act in Catalonia after Franco’s death. It’s a simple photo that pictures pretty well this important moment. Perhaps because of this has been used plenty of times, as a books cover, like a gift in numbered and signed gelatine prints, in collective exhibitions and also in my exhibition “In the Threshold of Change”. Just a handful of photographers documented the first Catalonia's National Day. Maybe now it would be different. I imagine the thousands and thousands of people in the event taking pictures, all of them, with his mobile phones and digital cameras.
