2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth in Valls, Tarragona, of one of the leading figures in Spanish photography: Francesc Català-Roca. The book celebrating his anniversary brings together around 150 images, some of them unpublished, together with other iconic ones, specially selected for this publication.

A journey through the history of this photographer who portrayed the protagonists of the bohemian and cultural life of the time in an immense work of documentation of urban and rural life, while capturing the social, political and cultural environment that surrounded him like no one else. A photographer who revolutionised street photography with iconic images of everyday reality.

Francesc Català-Roca was born in 1922. The son and father of photographers, his work in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s represented the irruption of the new street photography in Spain, comparable to Henri Cartier Bresson or Robert Doisneau. He travelled around Spain for half a century and portrayed the transition from the rural to the urban world. With his camera he left a record of a unique testimony that he jealously treasured in an archive with more than two hundred thousand negatives. He won the National Plastic Arts Prize in 1983, being the first photographer to obtain this recognition.
