Ausencia, by Manuel Cohen


Throughout the world, buildings and areas of great architectural importance have been deserted, abandoned to reveal decay and dilapidation.

This slowly evolving heritage unveils battered facades and dislocated interiors, forever marked by the presence of those who have passed through them. As monuments to neglect, these spaces exude oblivion.


For more than two years, Manuel Cohen has photographed the town of Tortosa, capital of the Spanish Terres de l’Ebre and listed as a Historic Monument.

This work has resulted in a unique serie which encourages us to reflect on the universal themes of Dereliction and Absence.
