Many well-known faces will be taking part in a charitable exhibition based around the number eight
Designer, photographer and businessman Fèlix Tutusaus was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease during a routine visit to his doctor. For over a year now he has been collecting photos of people, some of whom are well known, using the number eight as a common denominator: Project number 8, post code number 8 of Barcelona, job number 8.
The collection of photos portrays people creating and posing alongside their own ‘number 8’, in representation of Tutusaus’s struggle, while at the same time presenting a portrait of the cosmopolitan, urban reality of Barcelona. All proceeds from the sale of the photos will be donated to the Parkinson’s Association with a view to raising awareness of the disease among the general public.
The exhibition has already visited several locations and can be seen in Plaça Comes, in the Les Corts district, up until the 8th of February. The enthusiastic participation of over 200 personalities, including de Boris Hoppek, Pasqual Maragall, Toni Miró, Andreu Buenafuente, Xavier Trias and Ferran Adrià, along with countless others promises to deliver encouraging and even surprising results, as Tutusaus says, “The commitment and spirit has been unconditional”. Good hearted people for a good cause.
