Room 404 Two Visions of Spain in the 1950s: Eugene Smith and Brassaï

Room?s details

In the nineteen fifties Spain caught the interest of a number of international photographers. Two specific projects are recalled here: Eugene Smith’s Spanish Village, a controversial feature with overt political intentions made for Life magazine, and Brassaï’s series Séville en fête made for Harper’s Bazaar, that proposes instead a picture of Spain halfway between the dream-like images indebted to Surrealism and the clichés of a tourist guide.
