Peer into Barcelona’s past through the lens of Gabriel Casas, one of the most influential Catalan photographers of the 20th century. Like many other artists of the Civil War period, Casas turned to photography as a powerful method of communication and of capturing modern industrial society. He was one of the first artists to bring the innovative New Vision photography movement from Germany to the Iberian Peninsula, combining a keen, objective observation of life’s details and an innovative aesthetic, often emphasising technology and industry. Working as a photojournalist, Casas had a successful career until the beginning of the Franco era, when he was prosecuted, incarcerated and banned from the media. This exhibition showcases 120 of his works dating from 1929 to the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939.
