In the first decades of the 20th century, the world was looking similarly as our world looks today: a contrast between new and old, between high-tech and countryside. Of course, the costumes are different , as are the terms of comparisons - zeppelins vs. supersonics. But still, we are with one foot in the modernity and the other in the supermodernity.
My thoughts after the photography exhibition from Instituto Cervantes, by Luis Ramon Marin. The style is very close of what I am thinking myself about photography: use the lenses to register carefully the reality - the photos from the Spanish Civil War are a testimony of life and history - with its colourful human mosaic in a black-and-white universe.
