The 10 best in Spain
The Antonio P. Martín, photography collection it can be classified as one of the ten best private collections of contemporary photography in Spain and the most significant in the archipelago.
The exhibition invites both the enjoyment and reflection of an artificial and human environment, such as cities, that space created as a second skin, the most external, of its domestic environment and, at the same time, the most public of the humanized spaces. Perhaps the most shocking, yet enduring, imprint of human creation.
