People and moments of Barcelona during Spain’s transition to democracy through the lens of Pilar Aymerich

Galeria Eude will host this exhibition until 17 September

Montserrat Roig, Josep Pla, Maria Aurèlia Capmany and Ovidi Montllor are just some of the people portrayed by Pilar Aymerich in an exhibition scheduled to run until 17 September – though the gallery will be closed during August – at Galeria Eude, at number 278 Carrer de Consell de Cent. The title of the exhibition is  Pilar Aymerich’s Barcelona. All of the images on display are in black and white and will take the observer back to the second half of the 1970s, when Spain was living through its transition to democracy following the death of the dictator Francisco Franco.

 

Aymerich was one of the leading figures in photography of her period and, as well as portraits, she captured images of union and feminist protests. Since she was also involved in the action, her images clearly convey what it was like to be there at the time.

 

Forty years later Pilar Aymerich still carries a small camera around in her handbag “just in case” and the exhibition on her at Galeria Eude allows us to return to those transcendental years and get to know them better thanks to her work.
