In 1958 he launched the project for a photobook on the monastery of El Escorial commissioned by the RM publishing house in Barcelona, and a year later, during a trip around Spain, a second commission on popular Mediterranean architecture arose. Although they remained unpublished, both works were the object of constant revision by the photographer throughout his life.
Sixty years later, both photobooks are published, preceded by specialised texts by architects Javier Mosteiro and Marco Iuliano. The publication is completed by a volume in which Inaki Bergera and art historian Horacio Fernandez offer us an overview of the artist's life and investigate the relationship between these two projects.
