Gabriel Casas is one of the most important Spanish photographers of the interwar period.


He was of the first photographers in the peninsula to adopt the pictorial language of the New Vision, the movement started in Germany which stirred up the photography field with the use of surprising framing, low angle and high angle shots, light and shape contrasts, photomontages…

The exhibition gathers 120 pictures from one of the photographer’s best moment: from the International Exhibition in Barcelona at 1929 to the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939. Through a visual itinerary, visitors will explore the relation of Gabriel Casas to the New Photography, to questions of modernity and to the social and political issues of his time.
