SPAIN: Still Cause is a visual art project which I began in 2010 focused on the struggle for justice and recognition which is ongoing in Spain post Franco. It has so far comprised of an exhibition, small publication, a living memorial, talks, and this blog.
I am now working on a film which will feature first-hand testimonies from people directly affected by the Franco dictatorship.
The project was inspired by the photojournalist Gerda Taro and her work during the Spanish Civil War.

Still flown today at rallies and demonstrations by leftist groups
Nostalgic for some, and a hope for or belief in, there being a
third Republic in the future.
