La huerta y la ciudad (The orchard and the city) and more art by Zsolt Batori

La huerta y la ciudad (The orchard and the city), 2019


Artist's Statement
This is an in-progress work on three series of photographs on the relationship between two characteristic parts of the city of Murcia (Spain) and its vicinity. The city has been surrounded by an orchard since the Middle Ages. The development of the city over the past few decades, however, resulted in a slow but steady takeover process, in which the city gained both physical and cultural territory over the orchard. The orchard is still vast and vigorous, providing for many, but the city has spread and consequently overtook some of the traditional orchard areas. The two distinct parts represent different lifestyles, cultures, and visual environments. At their ever-changing borders they coexist and the presence of the other is felt even where not seen.
From the series 'La huerta y la ciudad (The orchard and the city)’: a photographic study of the cultural and visual changes of the city of Murcia, Spain and the traditional orchard area surrounding the city.
