The City: A Comparative Visual Study

The following images were taken in two cities within the same country, they depict the slight differences in cultural sectors of the cities and how these differences can be both defining and bear similar resemblance to one another. Madrid and Barcelona are both known for their exquisite art, historical architecture, covert prestige, artistic bricolage and perhaps most importantly, their dedication to their individual culture. Both cities pulsate with cultural prowess in their own right and yet both share uncanny similarities; the images were photographed by Tom Gallagher, words by Hannah Stirling and Tom Gallagher.
