Exhibition at Bodegas Roda | Marriages XIX: Francisco Gómez. Architecture Photography

The exhibition "Francisco Gómez. Architecture Photography" presents, through 60 photographs, the author's affinity for Architecture, which began with his collaboration with the Arquitectura magazine. From then, his photographic practice was greatly diversified, and opened to genres such as Architecture photography and an incipient urban documentary practice.

The exhibition, on until November at Bodegas Roda (Haro), in La Rioja, is part of "Marriages", an exhibitions series organized by the Foto Colectania Foundation since 2007, based on the photographs from the Foundation’s collection.

Francisco Gómez was part of the intense process of Spanish photography renewal that took place around the mid-20th century. He was part of some of the major movements and photographic groups that emerged in our country since the 1950s, such as the Afal group, La Palangana or the Madrid School. His photographic career gained a new impulse since he started to collaborate with the Arquitectura magazine in 1959, for which he worked until 1974.

Since 2001, the Paco Gómez Archive is part of Foto Colectania’s Collection, consisting of more than 1,000 positives and more than 24,000 negatives.

The exhibition presented at the 19th edition of Marriages presents a selection of photographs that was part of the exhibition "Archivo Paco Gómez. The Poetic Moment and the Architectural Image ", organized by Foto Colectania for the Community of Madrid, and curated by Alberto Martín.
