At quick glance these look like sketches. But Spanish photographer Pep Ventosa actually merges dozens of photos to transform our awareness of these highly familiar tourist locations, in what he calls “a celebration of our collective memory.” Nominated for the Photography Masters Cup in the International Color Awards, images in this series have an almost dream-like quality, rich with details and hazy layers. Ventosa himself says: “What grows is a unique new narrative space that never actually happened, where the whole has traveled mysteriously further than what the camera documented. Part memory, part imagination. Not unlike the way we see.”
