For Jose Antonio Coderch, photography was what painting was for Aalto or Le Corbusier. Despite the absence of any pictures of buildings, as explained by Carles Fochs, architect and author of the catalogue, it is actually an example of architecture.
The images reflect the Coderch's interest in treating subjects such as capturing motion, lighting, framing and contrasts, comparable to the myriad of solutions present in his architecture. We discover, behind the lens, a man who applies the same criteria, tastes and requirements to photography as he does to architecture.
The patient observation of the environment and the transformation of situations into images, intensely developed throughout the process all the to the final frame of the copies, allowed him to explore the world of forms and achieve what is known today as a personal vision.
The exhibit, a series of bullfighting photos, where the prevailing idea is to capture motion; a set of compositions on the textures of objects, their profiles, their contrasts, shadows and darkness; and paragraph portraits of family and friends, male and female, where we find pictures from Sert to Chillida, along with pictures in more intimate and familiar settings.
