Txema Salvans: The Waiting GameTxema Salvans: The Waiting Game

Published by RM.
Text by Martin Parr, John Carlin.

Gathering a series of photographs taken by Txema Salvans (born 1971) over the course of six years, The Waiting Game documents the exercise of prostitution along the highways of Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Disguised as a surveyor, Salvans photographed prostitution with an emphasis on the decidedly unerotic quality of its actual environs: the intersections, roundabouts, dead-end streets and shoulders of the road. The photographs in this book present the solitary figure of the waiting woman as a stereotypical image of objectified sexuality, in a landscape that is both striking and tragic. Exploring the varied and often surprising gamut of human longings and behaviors, Salvans achieves a balance of sociological dissection and naturalistic narration, and presents the image of the prostitute as an almost impersonal component of a larger mechanism.

Published by La Fábrica.

For Txema Salvans (born 1971), photography functions as a type of therapy through which he expresses and cures his deepest sorrows. Whether focusing his lens on a bride or a prostitute, anelderly woman or a baby, his often surreal compositions convey the sense that the states of being we think of as distinct are much closer than they first appear.
