An astonishing book on 'deep Spain'


Veteran Member
Now in SDC, I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art - well worth the visit for the building alone.

In the bookshop there I saw a book of black and white photographs named "Transtempo" by Cristina Garcia Rodero, 40 euros.

This is a collection of photos which reveals a Spain which few, if any of us, has ever seen or knew about. Many images are informative, stunning, even startling. Taken over 40 years, they reveal a hidden Spanish pueblo life of magic, spirit, sensuality, debauchery and some are just plain incomprehensible. The church has a secondary role, but is visible, though in a way which I didnt expect.

I'm going back now for another look. My emotional response to these images took me by surprise.

If you can get sight of this, please do. It rewrote some received ideas I had about life in parts of Spain.

LJ - thanks for that gives a feeling for what this woman has achieved in photography, in my view one of the best I´ve ever seen. ..Cartier Bresson, eat your heart out....The Spain she shows is...astonishing...
