Ca l’Isidret is a platform that we, photographers Aleix Plademunt, Juan Diego Valera and Roger Guaus created in Barcelona in 2011 to experiment with artistic projects connected to images and publishing. Ca l’Isidret is a laboratory that facilitates all kinds of photographic and publishing experiences, within which we play dual roles of photographers and publishers, from a position of absolute creative freedom. We relish working with other collectives – designers, typographers, writers, critics, printers, architects, musicians – to enrich and enhance the creativity and outcome of each project.

Almost There is a book work which presents a challenging constellation of images. Exploring of what is closest and what is furthest away. Ultimately it communicates the frustration of never being close enough and never being far enough away. Just managing to be almost there. The impossibility of reaching one's destination. Photographing the photograph. Photography as an imaginary return journey and at the same time as a reflection of that place and that thing we can never go back to, which we can never see again in the same way. Almost There, in short, explores the genres and languages we use to try to understand the world through images. But it also examines how photography conditions our visions as well as the intrinsic mystery of each place: being there, getting there, seeing it from afar or observing it up close.

Almost There presenta una constel·lació complexa d'imatges explorant allò que està més aprop i allò més llunyà. En darrera instància comunica la frustració de no poder trobar-nos mai suficientment a prop ni suficientment lluny, únicament gairebé ser-hi. Almost There fotografia la fotografia. La fotografia com a viatge de retorn imaginari i, alhora, com a reflex de l'allà i l'allò on mai podrem tornar, que mai podrem tornar a mirar de la mateixa manera. Almost There proposa, en suma, una mena de deambular pels gèneres i els llenguatges amb els que mirem d'entendre el món a partir de les imatges, però també pel com la fotografia condiciona les nostres visions, així com el misteri intrínsec de cada lloc: ser-hi, arribar-hi, veure'l de lluny o observar-lo de molt a prop.
