The most acclaimed chronicler of Catalan culture, Joan Colom (born 1921) is one of the most important Spanish photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. This book presents more than 500 photographs spanning the whole of his career. It includes his best-known images of the 1950s and 60s, taken somewhat clandestinely in the red-light district of Barcelona's famous Barrio Chino--black-and-white portrayals of the city's street life and underworld that have since become iconic. Also included is a less familiar side of Colom's career--his reportage of the 1990s, in which he began to use color, surveyed here for the first time. This 464-page monograph is published on the occasion of a major exhibition at The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, to whom Colom donated his massive archive.
