This is Marta, who I met at a couchsurfer’s meeting in the Gràcia neighbourhood. She has started working and living in the heart of the city, and told me about the intricacies of her scientific pursuits. I left with a niggling feeling that I did not get a good shot of her with the low lighting, but was unable to meet her again for a second try.
