Juan Baraja in Washington DC


Project titled "Florida Ave"

1 of December 2022

Juan Baraja is one of the invited artists in the DC.es / A gaze of Washington by Spanish Photographers, a project of SPAIN Arts & culture.


Florida Ave. presents the journey of photographer Juan Baraja along one of the principal hubs of the city of Washington DC, Florida Avenue. The photographs that articulate the exhibition manage to extract the essence of this street where extremes are mixed. His photographs, generate a solid but multiple discourses that connect places, objects and people. Perhaps the most fragile and elusive, who resist in Florida before the evidence of a city still under construction, in which apartment blocks go up in a few months, and where a wholesale market slowly breaks down, despite having long been the nucleus of a neighbourhood.


The project will be displayed from December 1, 2022, to March 1, 2023, at the Spanish Ambassador's Former Residence, 280116th St NW, Washington, DC 20009, USA.
