Through Her Eyes
Isabel Steva ‘Colita’ (Barcelona, 1940) is one of the most prominent names in contemporary Catalan photography. With a wide selection of photographs from her graphic career, ‘Colita. Porque sí!’ links her entire universe: friends, pleasures, ideas, places and beyond. The exhibition is a journey through time, from the sixties through Spain’s difficult transition to democracy, up to the present day. Her work is not just a documenting of reality, but also the projection of her experiences through her own eyes, exploring topics such as the feminist struggle, the world of flamenco, cinema, the Gauche Divine, and, simply, life in the city. Charged with intent and humour, these 107 images go beyond her best-known facets in documentary and portrait photography. Through her 44 years of practice, Colita has held more than 40 exhibitions and has published over 30 photographic books.
