Mey Rahola (León, 1897 - Vaucresson, 1959) was a prominent photographer who made a name for herself in the field of artistic photography in Spain during the 1930s. Mey Rahola participated in the construction of a new role for women in the public sphere during the Second Republic: an independent, traveling, empathetic and ironic woman.
Her promising career was cut short by war and exile, but she continued to take ambitious photography as an amateur. The Museu Nacional de Catalunya presents an anthological exhibition of his work, divided into three stages that reflect the transformations of his photographic practice throughout the 20th century. Simultaneously, the Museu de l'Empordà presents an exhibition focused on the photographic genre in which Mey Rahola stood out the most in the 1930s: seascapes. This project is part of the program of activities of the Centenary of the Photographic Association of Catalonia 2023.
