    Ijewo

    • Ijewo by Cristina de Middel, from the This is what hatred did series, 2015. Exhibited in Sin Fronteras at the Palacio de la Magdalena

    PhotoEspana, Madrids annual celebration of photography, offers an extensive programme of exhibitions to suit all tastes. The work of established figures such William Klein, Berenice Abbott, and Manuel lvarez Bravo is on display alongside shows introducing young, emerging European photographers. The subjects of the exhibitions are equally diverse, ranging from rare Soviet photobooks to snapshots bought on eBay, from collective projects decades in the making to solo undertakings completed in months.

    Portraits

    International

     

    Among the many highlights is a comprehensive overview of photography projects by Stephen Shore, Josef Koudelka, Lewis Baltz, Sophie Ristelhueber and Raymond Depardon, who were officially commissioned to chart the changing landscapes of Europe from the early 1980s to the present day. Two exhibitions celebrate Donna Ferratos tireless work in combating domestic abuse. And the late Leila Alaouis sympathetic portraits of The Moroccans are displayed to sober effect at Casa rabe.

    Leila

    • Esauira, 2012 by Leila Alaoui from The Moroccans at Casa rabe

    At the heart of the festival are five exhibitions of art photography, gathered under the heading deja vu because of their dependence on antecedent traditions, ideas and works, which reflect on the current nature, limits and possibilities of the medium. Elina Brotherus, for example, produces work that engages with the legacy of conceptual art of the 1960s and 70s. Clare Strand makes painted versions of tabloid photographs. Patrick Pound and Dlio Jasse reinterpret archival material to radically different ends. Laura Letinsky and Sharon Core use the still life as a means of raising questions about genre, tradition and reproduction.

    Schools

    • Schools Out, Dakar 1963 (painted 2000), at Espacio Fundacin Telefnica

    A vibrant retrospective of the work of the US photographer William Klein presents his pictures in a display as energetic, innovative and brash as the photographs themselves. Included here are rarely seen early paintings as a student of Fernand Lger, uncompromising street photography, iconoclastic fashion work, starkly abstract scientific studies, painted contact sheets and vivid film work.

    Javier Vallhonrat

    Poliptico

    • Poliptico 4, 2017, at Real Jardn Botnico

    For more than 10 years, Javier Vallhonrat has explored, studied and photographed the Maladeta glacier in the Pyrenees. The duration of the project, the intensity of its focus and the rigour of the fieldwork are evident in the imposing and magisterial works on show. Aerial imagery outlines the development of the Maladeta over time. And ground level pictures, assembled as collages, reveal the scarred surfaces of the glacier. Their presentation suggests tectonic plates perhaps, and the fragmentary nature of Vallhonrats subject
