Photobooks for your eyes

  -  

As part of the celebrations for our 20th anniversary, we are opening our photobook treasure chest to show you some of the jewels, first editions, curiosities and remarkable books from our collection. You will be able to access to a selection of authors created especially for you in our library, during a small format session. Among them we will have Sandra Balcells, Richard Avedon, Colita, Ferdinando Scianna, Joan Fontcuberta, Sally Mann... and more.

It will be a unique experience to see some photobooks that are very difficult to access.
