Twentysix Abandoned Catalan Gasoline Stations
“Twentysix Abandoned Catalan Gasoline Stations” is, apart from an obvious homage to Ed Ruscha’s 1962 seminal artist book, the result of a six-year long solitaire treasure hunt in which I challenged myself to find as many derelict gas stations as I could in my native Catalonia (for those who don’t know, an area in Northeastern Spain which is only slightly bigger than Belgium).
The project has recently been released in the form of a photobook thanks to publishing house Camera Infinita.

Xavier Aragonès is an amateur photographer born in 1979 and currently living in Terrassa, Spain. His main field of interest is the landscape, either natural or man-altered. When taking photographs he claims to be more inclined to capture mood and atmosphere rather telling a straight story. He has published two photobooks, both through publisher Camera Infinita: “O. O. O .” and “Twentysix Abandoned Catalan Gasoline Stations”. He has also had some of his work featured in Camera Infinita Magazine and Underdogs Magazine.
