dc.description.abstractChosen from thousands of postcards in Jordi Sardà's private collection, this selection of just 12 images illustrates the magic of America by night. One next to the other, they piece together a mosaic of an urban reality that was brand-new (with bridges, streets, junctions, grids and buildings) and that continues to identify the great cities of the vast American continent. American cities, unlike their European counterparts, quickly realized that light was a miraculous artifice enabling them to grow outwards and upwards, unstoppably. It is light that allows life round the clock in Los Angeles and Sao Paulo, in Buenos Aires and Las Vegas, in Rio de Janeiro and New York, and light which, on occasion, makes night, paradoxically, the best part of the day.
