Two catalan frontier towns with opposite urban dynamics. La Jonquera is the main entry door for goods by land in Spain with significant collateral effects: destruction of small businesses, exorbitant increase in crime and large-scale prostitution. Instead, Portbou lives melancholic about his rich railway past. And apparently only the condition of border towns unites them.

The images are presented in diptychs: in color (La Jonquera) and in black and white (Portbou)
