The 5 of the week by José María Estrada (“Friend of the Library”)


Friday / “Hidden Spain” by Cristina García Rodero



Considered one of the most outstanding and creatively significant photographers in Spain, it was at the university level that she began in the field of photography. Without ever leaving the classroom, she will dedicate herself ever since to investigating with her camera the popular, pagan and religious celebrations of Mediterranean Europe, especially Spain. The result of this would be her book Hidden Spain (Lunwerg, 1989), which has received numerous awards such as "Book of the Year Award" at the Arles Photography Festival or the one awarded by the Eugene Smith Foundation in New York.
