Between 1955 and 1965 Ramón Masats travelled around Spain with his camera. A commission on patriotic values for the Gaceta Ilustrada that allowed the development of a new language, synthetic, accurate in content and splendid in its graphics. Masats' work coincides with the end of the autarchy of the Franco regime and the opening designed by the Ministry of Education and Tourism. Visit Spain was that first message used by the tourist propaganda. Here we take a look at that Spain through the eyes of one of the most decisive photographers in our country.

Ramón Masats (Caldes de Montbui, Barcelona, 1931) is one of the protagonists of the renewal of documentary reporting in the sixties. The photographic essay Los Sanfermines, begun in 1955, is a basic work in his career. In 1964 he published Viejas historias de Castilla la Vieja (Old Stories from Old Castile), which included texts by Miguel Delibes, and exhibited alongside Carlos Saura. From 1965 onwards, he moved on to film and television (El que enseña, Tropical Spanish or Conozca usted España). In 1981 he returned to devote himself fully to photography, but this time in colour. His work has been recognised with various awards, including the National Photography Award.
