Fundació MAPFRE offers an exhibition of the photographer’s best series.
Carlos Pérez Siquier (Almería, 1930) is a key photographer in the professionalisation of the medium and he is renowned in Spain for his unusual style that verges towards neorealism. Despite being a pioneer of colour photography in this country, he still combines black and white techniques, always seeking to show his perspective in the best way possible. Pérez Siquier has played a significant role in the representation of Spanish society, due to the unique way in which he observes the world around him, considered a departure from conventions, rather like someone who is passing by, but does not want to be noticed. His work is important within the world of photography in Spain and, thanks to Fundació MAPFRE, you can now admire it in Casa Garriga Nogués, in Carrer Diputació.
The exhibition will run from 14 February to 17 May and it will show a series of photographs taken throughout Pérez Siquier’s whole career, some of which have never been published before, with which the photographer has won numerous prizes. For example, he won the National Photography Prize in 2003 and the Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts in 2008.
The centre is open to visitors on Mondays, from 2.00 pm to 8.00 pm, Tuesday to Saturday, from 10.00 am to 8.00 pm, and Sunday and public holidays, from 11.00 am to 7.00 pm.
