The form of the photo book allows for narrative meaning to arise from the images, and as such, has been used by many of the most preeminent photographers to present and communicate their works. In Spain particularly, the photo book is colored by a complex national history – the Civil War, the transition to democracy, the social and cultural role of the peasantry and the evolving role of women have all been significantly documented via the photo book. The relationship of Spanish culture and photography to the photo book is comprehensively explored in this volume, published to accompany an exhibition at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. This volume collects the work of not only well-known photographers such as Jose Ortiz Echague, Alfonso, Francesc Catala-Roca, Ramon Masats, Xavier Miserachs, Francisco Ontanon and Colita, but also relatively unknown figures, such as Antonio Canovas, the collective work of Misiones Pedagogicas (Teaching Missions), Jose Compte, Enrique Palazuelo, Luis Acosta Moro and Salvador Costa. Text by Horacio Fernandez explains the cultural significance of these artists’ works and further delves into the complex relationship between the Spanish photo book and literature.
