  1. This book is an amazing record of a popular movement which shows at the same time how to photograph people, how to do street photography and how to do photojournalism. It is a real tour de force.As Ted Grant says in the introduction, it really should be in every photographer’s collection.Some of the images in this book stand comparison with many of the best known photographs of protests by the likes of HCB, Mark Riboud and others. These are not the violent protests much-loved of journalists, but the protest of Everyman.Lluis Ripoll has an eye for people and an eye for people. For many years he has been recording his native Barcelona, moving effortlessly through the Rambla and less busy areas photographing life as it passes his lens with a facility that most of us never achieve. There is also a subtlety in many of the images which brings a smile to the viewer, but at the same time contributes to understanding the subject..Finally, “Idignats” records a grass roots movement in reaction to the cuts made in reaction to the 2010 economic crisis and their impact on the man in the street, which many felt should be imposed on the banks and other institutions that caused it. Because it was taken by such a quiet and discreet photographer and depicts real people, it stands as an important historical record of a kind rarely achieved.
