foto 2022 50 fotosAna Juan, President of the Consell de Formentera; Alejandra Ferrer, Vice President and Councillor of Tourism; Isabel Izquierdo, director of programming at Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), and Carlos Bernús, the local head of tourism promotion, presented "50 fotografías con historia", a display of 50 photographs from the last eighty years of our country. The exhibition is curated by José María Díaz-Maroto and Gonzalo Revidiego.

Vice President Ferrer thanked organisers for giving Formentera the chance to host an exhibition "of great historical importance" and invited residents and tourists to "visit it and get to know in an educational and artistic way a collection of snapshots from the last eight decades in our country".

Ms. Izquierdo explained that the exhibition, which is presented by the state-owned AC/E, "has met with rave reviews due to its quality and the breadth of topics shown, and because it brings together the most prominent names in Spanish photography of the twentieth century". With 50 images that tell 50 stories, "50 fotografías con historia" takes visitors on a visual journey from the Spanish Civil War to our world today. The exhibition has toured several Spanish cities.

The director of Formentera Fotogràfica asserted, "Bringing the AC/E's magnificent exhibition to the island in parallel with the tenth Formentera Fotogràfica is a point of pride. Many of the photographers who are part of this journey through the history of photography –Chema Madoz, Juan Foncuberta, Isabel Muñoz, Sandra Balsells, Juana Biarnés, Ricardo Casas, Cristina García Rodero, Alberto García-Alix, Cristina de Middel, Carlos Pérez-Siquier and Gervasio Sánchez– have also been integral to the life of the festival, so we are very excited to share this special edition with all of them again. Plus, this year we will welcome Chema Conesa and Ramon Masats, to whom we pay a well-deserved tribute on the centenary of Francesc Català-Roca".

The collective exhibition is on display in Es Pujols' Plaça d'Europa until 3 July. Seventeen of the featured photographers are also recipients of Spain's National Photography Prize. The exhibition offers visitors the chance to take a guided tour by using their mobile phones to scan the QR codes that accompany each photograph.

The exhibition is organised by AC/E, the Consell de Formentera and Formentera Fotogràfica, which this year celebrates its tenth anniversary on the island between 26 and 29 May.
