The work of María Bleda (Castellón, 1976) and José María Rosa (Albacete, 1970), is one of the most unique on the contemporary Spanish photographic scene. The two photographers have spent three decades jointly exploring the relationships between image, place and memory. His work is structured in series, among which Football Fields, Battlefields and Origin or Prontuario stand out. With them they have progressively developed their own language that moves between the visual and the textual, and that allows them to review the main axis on which their work revolves: the representation of the different meanings and evocations that the human gaze makes emerge from contemplation. from the landscape.


The Angel of History

Photographers can encourage the observer to contemplate his works with other ways of seeing, remembering and conceiving the past outside the established canons. In this sense, the work of Bleda and Rosa refers us to the figure of the Angel of History by Walter Benjamin, who looked back and contemplated a future that did not advance towards progress, but was in ruins, and only had the hope that it can be rebuilt, perhaps with a different result.
