Painting and photography have shared a passionate and close relationship since the beginning. The constant inquiry between both genres has provided a suitable breeding ground for artistic creation. However, creators who use photography also need to revisit classic canons of painting.

In this selection from Foto Colectania’s Collection, we can see how photographers approach the artistic practice of still life from different perspectives: from marvellous composition style exercises by Toni Catany, Humberto Rivas and Rafael Sanz Lobato, to the strange combination of elements by Joan Fontcuberta, Chema Madoz and Manuel Vilariño, including the found still lives by Ferran Freixa and Manolo Laguillo.

Marriages is an exhibitions programme held at the exhibition hall of BODEGAS RODA since 2007, and based on Foto Colectania’s collection of photographs.

Bodegas Roda is a Sponsor of the Foto Colectania Foundation.
