Carlos Saura: Flamenco

February 18 March 27, 2006

Carlos Saura captured the world of flamenco dance and music in 95 black-and-white photographs executed between 1950 and 2000. The photographs illustrate in high contrast the discipline and collaboration of dancers and musicians as they rehearse and perform. Famous and legendary flamenco artists like El Camarón, Paco de Lucía, Cristina Hoyos, and Farruquito are immortalized by Saura, whose photographic vocation started when he was just ten years old.
