Joan Colom : I Work the Street, Photographs 1957-2010 Hardback


This is a superbly illustrated overview of the work of Joan Colom, one of the most critically acclaimed Spanish photographers of the late 20th-century.

Joan Colom (Barcelona, 1921) is one of the most important Spanish photographers of the second half of the 20th-century, and often considered the most influential chronicler of Catalan culture.

This book immerses readers in Colom's universe through more than 500 photographs spanning the whole of his career.

It includes best-known images, taken almost clandestinely in the 1960s in the red-light district of Barcelona's Barrio Chino: black and white photographs of street life and underworld that have become iconic.

Also included is his less familiar, but no-less evocative, reportage work from the 1990s, in which he began to use colour photography.
