Ricardo Cases' third photobook deals with an unusual subject: the practice of pigeon racing in the Spanish regions of Valencia and Murcia, a game consisting of releasing one female pigeon and dozens of male pigeons that chase her trying to get her attention. None of them ever gets too intimate, but the winner is the one that spends the most time close to her. The winner is not the most athletic, the toughest or the purest in breed but the more courteous, the one showing more constancy and having the strongest reproductive instinct. The macho.  Raising a male champion entails prestige and profits. Painted in a combination of primary colours, like a flag or a soccer kit, the male pigeon raised and trained to mate becomes a projection of the pigeon-keeper, who embodies its sportive, economic and sexual success or failure in the community. Far from the harsh reality of his daily life, the colombaire has a second life where he can get to the top. He just needs a champion pigeon. The pigeon-keeper stays on the ground, while his projection is able to fly. The present series examines the game as a symbolic act, a projection and a way of relating to the world. A group of men running through the countryside behind their male pigeons, observing their mating performances, discussing the rules and arbitrations? It refers to the ethnographic documentation of remote tribes rituals or to the group of children who invent a game while discovering the world.  Ricardo Cases at his purest.

He rears them, names them, trains them and has faith in them. When competition day arrives he turns up with childish excitement and uncertainty. Pigeon sports have rules and referees and pigeons can reach a value of thousands of euros, with bets moving even higher amounts. However, there is something much more childlike in the fascination for birds, and the man who holds a trembling bird in his hand has the same look he had when he was ten years old. The most macho Within columbiculture we find a truly Spanish variant: sports columbiculture. The game is as follows: a hen pigeon is set loose while dozens of cock pigeons fly after her to compete for her favours. Although none of them really fully achieves this goal, the male who spends the most time close to the female is the winner. The winner is not the most athletic pigeon, the one with the most endurance or the purest bred one. The winner is the most gallant pigeon, the one with the greatest persistence and reproductive instinct, the most macho.

Breeding a winning pigeon can mean prestige and financial gain. Painted with combinations in primary colours, just like flags and football teams, the pigeon selected, bred and trained to mate, becomes a projection, a flying vector of the pigeon fancier, which will represent his sporting, economic and sexual success or failure before the community. Far from the daily grind, the pigeon fancier finds in the pigeon breeding universe a parallel life where he can reach the top. All he needs is a winning bird. The pigeon fancier remains on the ground but his vector can fly. (.) " Text by Luis López Navarro, 2011. Firmado por el autor. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE-1497007938067
