“Ribas’s intimate exploration — of the rubble, monoliths and sharp edges found at an abandoned industrial site, where the once smooth concrete surface has been violently destroyed in order to prevent the sixty Gypsy families that once lived there from returning — is a sad but striking (and beautifully photographed) testament to displacement and discrimination, subtly discovered by Ribas within the shapes and forms of an easily overlooked contemporary landscape.” – Aaron Schuman
