Catalonia’s photographic patrimony now available online
Now some of the outstanding collections from the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC), the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) and Barcelona’s Photographic Archive, amongst the work of contemporary photographers, are available online at ‘Fotografía a Catalunya’. Out of the 700 photographers that have been selected the work of 77 is now available at the website.
“This website starts to make Catalonia’s photographic patrimony visible” stated current Catalan Minister for Culture, Ferran Mascarell, and added that by launching this website “a lifelong pending issue has been sorted out”.
The website is the first of the measures set out in the Photography National Plan, approved in 2014.
