Joan Colom

Born 1921, Barcelona, Spain.
Died 2017, Barcelona.
Joan Colom is one of the great renovators of post-war Spanish photography. He produced his best-known pictures almost clandestinely, in the 1960s in the red-light district of Barcelona’s Barrio Chino, black and white photographs of street life that have become icons. After more than 20 years without taking pictures, Colom returned to the streets in the 1990s, when he started to use color. The photographs in the Public Space exhibition are presented for the first time outside Spain.
