As part of the celebrations for our 20th anniversary, we are opening our photobook treasure chest to show you some of the jewels, first editions, curiosities and remarkable books from our collection. You will be able to access to a selection of authors created especially for you in our library, during a small format session. Among them we will have Sandra Balcells, Richard Avedon, Colita, Ferdinando Scianna, Joan Fontcuberta, Sally Mann... and more.

It will be a unique experience to see some photobooks that are very difficult to access.

Juan Manuel Castro Prieto talks about Chambi and his work on Peru

  -  

As part of the exhibition Martín Chambi and his contemporaries. The Andes photographed, Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. we will have Juan Manuel Castro Prieto at Foto Colectania, who will talk to us about Chambi and also about his own look at Peru, a place where he has traveled continuously to photograph and that has marked his work in an undeniable way.

The thousands of photographs Castro Prieto took in Peru always emanate a dreamlike atmosphere. He uses reality as a sketch to represent his dreams. The landscapes, the portraits, the scenery have the mythical aroma of imagined journeys. Reconciling fantasy and reality is the challenge of this vast project with a powerful autobiographical imprint.
