The Diputació de Girona, through INSPAI, Image Center, has chosen the photographic project "Coexistir", by Pau de la Calle, as the winner of the twenty-first edition of the Young Photographers Award of Catalonia 2023.

"Coexist" is a sample of the photographic work ofPau de la Calle about The Santuari Gaia Foundation, who is a vegan centre for the rescue and recovery of farm animals that have been victims of exploitation, mistreatment or abandonment.

The exhibition can be seen at Casa de Cultura de la Diputació de Girona , from October 4 to November 25, 2023.

The Santuari Gaia Foundation is a vegan centre for the rescue and recovery of farm animals that have been victims of exploitation, mistreatment or abandonment. At the time it was created, there were only two such sanctuaries in Spain, but none for farm animals. «Nobody helps farm animals. They are considered to be for consumption. The bottom of the line”, explains Coque, co-founder of the sanctuary. “At Gaia, through the stories of these animals, we want people to see them not as a product, but as if they were their house dog or cat».
