Bringing the blue down from the sky, the thoughts and emotions that float over the prison space and manage to land on an artistic support. Art as a motor for social inclusion and the community, as a vehicle of cures and creation.

By using the 19th-century technique of cyanotype, Carol Priego leads a project of collaborative experimental photography with the inmates of the Youth Penitentiary Centre (CPJ) and local and international volunteers, linked to a variety of entities of the metropolitan area of Barcelona.

With the clear intention of valuing the female figures of history and of our own reality, the project includes workshops of alternative photography and an innovative exhibition space where five emerging and consolidated photographers dialogue with young people in the centre. The invited artists are Laia Abril, Irene Zottola, Clara Gassull, Cecília Coca and Marta G. Cardellach.

The result of the project can be seen in Àlbum, festival of contemporary image and photography.
