Oriol Maspons played an important part in the renewal of photographic language in Spain during the 1950s and 1960s. Lauded as one of the greatest Catalan photographers of all time, Maspons stylistically documented the sentiment of the city as it evolved economically and socially, as a new generation of thinkers and creatives emerged from the settling dust of the Spanish Civil War.
The medium of photography afforded him the privilege to capture the ephemeral transformations of a post-war society – and now, you can see 40 years of Maspons' work in this first major retrospective exhibition in the heart of Barcelona.
For the first time in Spain, see more than 200 original prints from the grandfather of manga, Osamu Tezuka. With creations like Astro Boy under his belt, Tezuka helped usher in the animation age in Japan.
Before Studio Ghibli took on the mantle as Japan's answer to Disney, Tezuka was being referred to as Japan's very own version of Walt. In fact, many have noted that Walt Disney Pictures took substantial inspiration for the Lion King from Tezuka's Kimba the White Lion.
This exhibition is part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of Manga Barcelona, and is a collaboration between FICOMIC and the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya to promote the heritage of the comic art form.
