Exhibition: Carlos Saura. Spain, 1950s

Carlos Saura, from the series Cuenca, 1950s © Carlos Saura

1950s Spain is revisited in the photography of Carlos Saura. The Cerralbo Museum is showing 92 photographs from the period, taken by the film director on his travels through the villages and cities of Spain.

Saura shares a little-known side of his creativity, as a photographer, depicting cities and their people, villages, his family and friends, and even his own film shoots. These photos show, on one hand, a Spain that is now almost forgotten, of villages with unpaved roads, houses of mud and stone, peasants and black-clad women, and the other Spain of traditions and customs, bullfights, and fiestas at Easter and the Fallas.
