Selected as a Book of the Week by Hannah Watson

Coined by neoconservatives, the term PIGS is used to reference the financial and social plight of Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain. Photographer Carlos Spottorno set out to visually illustrate the stereotypes inferred by the term, focusing on the poverty, imbalance of power, and lack of opportunity. The glaring absence of beauty stands out in The Pigs - and this omission is Spottorno's clever way of questioning the authenticity of the stereotype and its origin.
