In a time when photography has become trivial and ubiquitous, Richard Learoyd’s photographs are uniquely captivating. His black and white and color photographs are the result of an artisan process with a dark camera he built himself. His work is rooted in the past and makes multiple references to the history of painting, both in terms of his themes and the technique he employs. Richard Learoyd (Nelson, United Kingdom, 1966) is one of the most well-known contemporary photographers working today. The exhibition, which covers the last ten years of his work, is organized by Fundación MAPFRE and curated by Sandra Philips and includes 51 works from important public and private collections and the photographer’s own studio. The exhibition also includes a landscape taken in Spain commissioned by Fundación MAPFRE and that has been added to the MAPFRE photography collection, which now has two works by the artist. Ticket: €3.
