In the work of photographer Antoni Arissa Asmarats (Barcelona, 1900-1980), one of the most important figures of the photographic avant-garde, we encounter a clear and explicit artistic ambition. For Arissa, photography is not just a way of reflecting and documenting reality, but offers the possibility of venturing deeper into its creative dimension. His artistic ambitions and his constant searching and experimentation situate his work in the pictorialism of the first era, to evolve later towards the New Vision, indisputably his most modern and important phase.
