Francesc Català-Roca

(Valls, 1922 – Barcelona, 1998)


An essential figure in 20th century photography with a highly personal sense of composition and aesthetics, a master of visual narration and an exceptional chronicler of his era, Català-Roca took more than 200,000 photos during his lifetime, addressing a wide variety of issues.

Many of these photographs prominently feature women of all ages in different spheres and situations. Thanks to a fascinating immersion into his archive, this exhibition aims to shows how Català-Roca viewed women. His approach is full of respect and admiration, exalting their beauty in the broadest meaning of the word. His images hide and suggest stories about their lives.
