Cristina Garcia Rodero’s work is deeply interested in human behavior and the study of the customs and traditions that survived through the centuries. She is the only Spanish Magnum Agency photographer and she has received many awards during his long career, including the ” Premio Nacional de Fotografía ” – awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Culture – and, for three years, the prestigious “World Press Photo”.
The exhibition “Con la boca abierta”, which consists of 55 black and white photographs taken from Seventies till today is focused on one of the most expressive parts of the human body; the mouth. With their mouth the objects of the photographs give expression to all human emotions – anger, joy, fear or happiness. The exhibition is a retrospective journey through Rodero’s career, starting from Puertollano, her hometown, to the most remote corners all around the World.
During exhibition inauguration, Cristina Garcia Rodero will be the protagonist of the meeting ‘Reflections on the ethics of a craft’, and she will tell the audience of her experience.
