End of the Road, 2014. Oil on linen; 60 x 80 cm

On his first visit to Barcelona in 1977 Blitz saw this retired and abandoned truck in the cement factory of the nearby town of El Garraf. He took the black and white photograph with his father’s Voigtländer camera then tucked it away until 2014. Blitz gave the aged truck a monochrome treatment, evoking sepia photography of the late 1800's and early 1900's.
