“This exhibition proposes a journey through the history of the Spanish photobook, from the beginning of the XNUMXth century to the mid-XNUMXs. A selection of specimens from the Reina Sofía Museum collection, contextualized and accompanied by a variety of complementary material. A photobook is a publication made up of photographs ordered as sets of images with complex arguments and meanings. It is the medium used by some of the leading photographers to produce their best works, a tried and tested model for presenting, communicating and reading photos increasingly recognized as the best medium for presenting photographic sets.”
