They all originated in the patronage project of the same name which consisted in commissioning prestigious Spanish photographers, all of them National Photography Award winners, to work with complete freedom to create an artistic project about Asturias and its peoples. This project gave rise to an original body of work which is now part of the Foundation’s art collection.
Starting 17 March, the Spain Arts & Culture Centre is showing the unique, personal vision of this particular region in northern Spain that each of these four photographers has captured with their lenses in the United States capital.
