Women are beautiful
Foundation Foto Colectania presents for the first time in Barcelona the famous serie Women Are Beautiful by Garry Winogrand
The serie includes 85 photographs taken between 1960 and 1975 and collected in the book with the same title by the legendary director of photography at the MoMA, John Szarkowski. The exhibition from the collection of Lola Garrido (A modal of the collecting art in Spain), is part of the programming line of the foundation which is dedicated to authors who changed the course of the history of photography.
Winogrand combines spontaneity with an apparent confusion, which is more than aware of the complexity of the photography world: “I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs.” The presence of human beings, contrasting with the crowds and the streets in his photographs reveals a new way of looking, in which the anarchy results in a wealth of shapes and structures.
The Foto Colectania Foundation is a private non-profit organisation founded in Barcelona in 2002 aiming at promoting photography and encouraging photography collecting through exhibitions, activities(conferences, seminars, trips) and catalogue editions. Foto Colectania has its own photography collection that comprises of more than 2.000 works of Spanish and Portuguese authors from 1950 until today.
Until June 4
