Más allá de la afición. Nicolás and Elías Viñuales
Sala de Exposiciones de la Diputación de Huesca
Huesca, 20 May – 31 July 2016
Photographic exhibition focussing on the founders of Turismo del Altoaragón, one of the many amateur photography groups established in Spain in the first decades of the twentieth century. The Viñuales brothers (1881-1927, and 1892-1940) used photography to publicise, via posters, periodicals and exhibitions, the beauties, historic buildings and rural traditions of the Aragonese region, perceived to be under threat from modernity. The exhibition unites for the first time photographs from three local archives the Ayuntamiento of Huesca, the Diputación Provincial de Huesca and the Villanueva-Loscertales family. It is accompanied by a publication reproducing the displayed photographs.
