The show

Palazzo Albergati in Bologna hosts - from 8 April to 4 September 2022 - for the first time in Italy, the extraordinary Julián Castilla Collection with the exhibition PHOTOS!

Alfred Stieglizt, Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Meier, Robert Capa, André Kertèsz, Alberto Korda and Robert Doisneau, as well as Spanish photographers such as Carlos Saura, Ramón Masats, Oriol Maspons, Isabel Muñoz, Cristina García Rodero or Chema Madoz and many others are the undisputed protagonists, with their memorable shots that have now entered the collective imagination as a still image of the last century, of an unmissable journey through the history of photography.

A combination of over 70 works, by great Spanish and international masters, which make the Bolognese exhibition unique in the world.Considered one of the most important private collections in Europe, belonging to Julián Castilla, a well-known Spanish art collector, covers more than a century of photographic art, from the birth of modern photography at the beginning of the twentieth century to the present one of the twenty-first century. A narrative that, passing through the creation of the Magnum Agency and the development of photo-reportage, from the evolution of fashion photography to the story of the present, is confronted today with contemporary challenges in the digital age.

Most of the works in his historical collection are in black and white. The last photograph, dated February 2005, is by the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who portray their monumental 37 kilometer installation in Central Park, consisting of a total of 7,503 “doors” (orange fabric panels).
