Ghost Spain

On July 11, during the World Cup’s final match among Spain and Netherlands an army of spanish photographers went out to take pictures of the empty streets that more than 18 millions TV-viewers left. More than 200 volunteers from every place in Spain took advantage of the absence and portraited a desert country. This is the result.

I would like to thank everyone who has taken part in this project. Thanks for your quick answer, the volume of volunteers have been huge and that made possible generating and discovering extraordinary photographs.

Here is a personal summary of some of the most prominent spaces I rescued from the more than 800 photographs I received. You can find all in Flickr. All the pictures have been taken between 20.30 and 23.00 of July 11.
