‘50 Photographs with a Story’

‘50 Photographs with a Story’ on Passeig Colom

Acción Cultural Española surveys the last 80 years of Spain’s history in an outdoor exhibition.

One of the most important sources of information we’ve had for over a century is photography. We can understand many things from the past thanks to the professionals who have used their cameras to capture reality. Acción Cultural Española (ACE) wanted to take a survey of the past 80 years in the history of Spain through the art of photography with the exhibition 50 Photographs with a Story. Each of the works, which are displayed outdoors, is a reflection of a specific era and a way of viewing photography, as well as its corresponding social connotations. The timeline begins at the start of the Spanish Civil War with the snapshots that graphic reporters such as Agustí Centelles and Martín Santos Yubero took to document the conflict. The show continues with the post-war years, with photographs by Ricard Terré, Ramón Masats and Joan Colom, among others, who used a wider range of styles, such as documentary and satirical portraiture. 50 Photographs with a Story also shows other eras, such as the transition to democracy, with works by Alberto García-Alix and Marisa Flórez, and the 1990s with the rise in the documentalism of Isabel Muñoz and Sandra Balsells.

You can visit this exhibition all day long from 7 June to 27 August on Passeig Colom. Among the photographs on display are 17 National Photography Prize winners and 2 National Fine Arts Prize winners.

The exhibition is open to everyone free of charge. You can find complete information on the ACE website.
