After being evicted for not being able to pay their rent, several Roma families were forced to live on the streets, under the motorway bridge as it passed through Badalona. The documentary photographer Jordi Oliver approached there with the intention of living with them and denouncing that harsh reality through the image. After several months of visits, one of the mothers, concerned that the social workers would take her children away, proposed an idea: “Let’s write a letter to His Majesty the King, he will help us.”
