Photobooks: Spain 1905–1997 is a study of the photobooks published in Spain during the twentieth century.
As far as Spain is concerned, the history of photo books is determined by the avatars of its own national history, for instance the Civil War and the transition to democracy, the focus of some of the finest work produced. In addition to propaganda, changes to the image and social role of peasants and, above all, women, are also prominent issues that are explored. The relationship between literature and photography is another characteristic of Spanish photobooks, which also include works in closer proximity to the international history of the format, such as publications on urban matters. http://www.museoreinasofia.es/en/exhibitions/photos-books-spain-1905-1977
