Curated by Juan Naranjo, this exhibition shows a selection of almost 200 photographs and features one of the most interesting yet least known aspects of Gomis’ work: the fotoscops. Born in Barcelona in 1902, Joaquim Gomis was one of the first European artists to venture into a new language in photography. He was an active figure in the cultural and artistic life of the educated Catalan bourgeoisie and produced a broad and powerful body of photographic work in keeping with the most innovative approaches of his time.
