Art Ibiza: Raimon Torres

There's an exhibition of Photographs taken by the renowned architect Raimon Torres starting today in San Jose. Opening at 19.00 in the new cultural centre, Can Jeroni (next to Destino tapas bar) which was formerly the town's cinema, the exhibition will run until 28th February.
The photos contrast aspects of Ibiza life – town and country, tradition and modernity, local and foreign – in the years 1968 to 1975 when tourism was taking off on the island.

Torres, born in Barcelona in 1934 collaborated with such luminaries of the Ibiza architectural scene as Erwin Broner, Josep Lluís Sert and Félix Julbe, whose works are so valued and appreciated these days.

I had a sneak preview of the exhibition this morning and took some photos of the photos. Here they are.

You can tell the photos are genuine as nobody would wear yellow flares in Ibiza these days!
