The adventurer has accompanied two researchers in the discovery of a complex system of interconnected caves. It is the culmination of 14 years of research. He is the last true exploration. What’s left to explore the planet is in the interior of the Earth. Thus defines this new adventure Jesus Calleja, a radical immersion that discovers first greater underwater system of Europe, located in Mallorca, and four will show premiere on a special edition of prime time in early September. The couple formed by Xisco Gracia and Pere Garamundi espeleobuceadores thus concluded 14 years of work, driving viewers along a maze of 13 kilometers that leads to the connection between two cavities located 1,715 meters from each other. Jesus Calleja and his regular collaborators in diving – Oscar Espinasa and Mary March – have accompanied them to relay this spectacular discovery. To display these images with greater accuracy unseen beneath the waters of the Mediterranean, the computer program has manufactured secondaries a lighting design that will show a place magical, immense, completely unknown, full of contrasts and dangers, with caves that reach the length of five football fields but also with claustrophobic corridors only a unique and experienced diver of the team has had that access. Jesus Calleja is a mountaineer who presents and stars in space extreme challenge, showing viewers the most complicated challenges, since the ascent to Mount Everest to the transit of deserts, the dive in cenotes or exploration of glaciers.

These are photos taken always from the inside of rented cars. They explore two of the pillars of American culture: the car and the road. Perhaps the best way to experience the physical territory and the sentimental map of the EE UU: from an automobile and roads as trails. Cars and roads are two American pillars of culture and way of life.
Lee Friedlander (Aberdeen, Washington, 1934) bonded both items, vehicles and asphalt, and devoted himself to wander through their country in rented cars for years. I wanted to portray the country from the windshield of the car, from the inside of one the most attached to the Yankee idiosyncrasies of consumer goods. The series of photos, America by Car (America by car), which is exposed at the Timothy Taylor Gallery in London, is the result of the drift of the Grandmaster, one of the pillars the photographic currents of the new documentary and social landscape. From the taken driver’s seat ever since the seat of the driver and the usual square format in the recent work of Friedlander, 192 images of the series make use of mirrors, the moons and the side Windows as frames for photos. Point of view is a man who travels the country and observes it without abandoning the rolling space of a car. The result combines the vision documentary with a composition that occasionally reminiscent of Cubist painting and its powerful lines of flight. The exhibition is completed with another series, The New Cars (new cars), who commissioned him to Friedlander Harper s Bazaar magazine in 1964 to present to readers the latest models from the manufacturers, Chrysler, Buick, Pontiac and Cadillac.
Instead of photographing cars with glamorous style to use, Frielander took out them of context and portrayed them in actual sets: a drive-in, the parking lot of a House for sale, the reflection in the window of a furniture store Photos of cars, with high level of contrast, not conventional and silhouetted perspectives, acquire an almost ghostly presence. That was too bold for the magazine, which decided to pay the photographer their fees but not to publish the story. Friedlander takes pictures from the age of 14. His work gained notoriety when he was selected, along with Garry Winogrand and Diane Arbus, to participate in the New Document in the MoMa of New York exhibition.
