And reviewing the creative framework that he himself had designed in the 80's.

We are in the era of post-photography and the advent of the "homo photographicus". Following the thread of Fontcuberta's post-photography theories that poses a certain overcoming of photography for enter the realm of total image the documentary team has accompanied Joan Fontcuberta to the most diverse activities: from the laboratory to inaugurate an exhibition, from the construction of a fake until unveiling it, from a trip to a meeting with journalists, from work in the studio until a prize giving ceremony.
