Photography & Modern Architecture in Spain 1925-1965

"In order to explain something, the photographer must know how to choose and take the photograph in the way that most clearly shows what he wants to communicate," Francesc Català-Roca wrote in a 1987 issue of Quaderns d'Arquitectura i Urbanisme, the respected Barcelona architecture magazine. "Afterwards, an order must be established and, above all, it shouldn't be aimed to say a lot but rather a little and well expressed." This quotation and the featured image, a 1960 photograph of a service station in Oliva, Valencia, by Juan Haro Piñar, are reproduced from Photography & Modern Architecture in Spain 1925-1965, the enlightening and beautifully produced new survey from La Fabrica/Museo ICO.
