It's time to meet the photographer. Bonaventura Miralpeix i Fuster (1905-1956). He was born in Granollers (Catalonia, Spain) son of Joseph Miralpeix i Marieta Fuster, owners of a cottage (masia, in Cat.) in La Roca del Vallès dedicated to milk production, known as 'Cal Peix'. He studied until the age of 14 in a catholic school in Granollers and after he focused into helping the family business although the cows were not his passion. Among his hobbies were known hiking and of course photography to which he dedicated a lot of time. Because of this, the neighborhood had put the wrong name of the 'Three Eyes Ventura'. He fulfilled his military service in the Spanish Protectorate in Morocco in the city of Larache, where he served between 1926 and 1929. The image shown is of that moment. He married Lolita Escaldalbec, from La Roca del Vallès as well, with whom he had a son, Sadurní, born in 1933. During the Republican era, though not militant in any political party he was sympathetic to anarcho-syndicalist ideals. He was severely wounded at the start of the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), in the Aragon front, where he went as a volunteer in a militia. Due to injuries he returned home. It was then when his personality made a turn and became shy and lonely. Increasing walking through the woods and everybody said that he was going crazy by saying strange things he saw and portrayed. He lived until the last days of his life full of rumors and ridiculed of many people, including parishioners of the local church which saw him as a kind of demon. His disappearance in 1956 -his body was never found- continues being a mystery. The oldest local say that the demons brought him with them. His descendants, on the other hand, suspect that the most traditional and religious people of the village decided to kil him or that in someone of his long walks it should see something related to disappearances of political character. Anyway the images speak for their own. You have to judge it now.
