The Reina Sofia presents a Spanish history of the photobook, defined as a publication comprising a series of photographs telling a story, a format often used by historians and art photographers.
The exhibition delves into the museum's collection and spans from the start of the 20th century until the mid-1970s, accompanied by a selection of complementary material. The images document the Spanish civil war, peasants and rural life, Spain's transition to democracy, the role of women in Spanish society, and the relationship between Spanish literature and photography.
The exhibition features the work of José Ortiz Echagüe, Alfonso, Francesc Català-Roca, Ramón Masats, Xavier Miserachs, Francisco Ontañón and Colita, as well as lesser-known artists.
