Cristina García Rodero – España oculta (1989)


A rich and detailed portrait of the Spanish society creating probably the most memorable photobook that took Cristina García Rodero’s work to an international fame. The now Magnum’s member spent years by herself going most of the weekends outside of the city, exploring towns, folklorical festivities and creating an exceptional document of impressive quality. García Rodero’s pictures are full of details, where the main subject could be totally secondary, and show a sometimes dark, and others very funny photographic and anthropologic study of a rural Spain that was disappearing at that time.

I tried to photograph the mysterious, true and magical soul of popular Spain in all its passion, love, humor, tenderness, rage, pain, in all its truth; and the fullest and most intense moments in the lives of these characters, as simple as they are irresistible, with all their inner strength – Cristina Garcia Rodero
