Ilse Bing’s extensive life and artistic career (1899-1998) offers an interesting reflection of the main cultural trends and historical vicissitudes of the 20th century. In his photographs, the aesthetic proposals of successive artistic movements and styles are combined with a singularly personal look due to his humanist imprint and intense (but soberly expressed) social awareness. Ilse Bing was also one of the women who, together with such relevant figures as Nora Dumas, Gisèle Freund or Berenice Abbot, achieved as photographers a projection and recognition from which women had been excluded until then. His work has been preserved scattered among various collections in Europe and the United States, and this is the first occasion that an exhibition makes his entire career known at a national level.
On the other hand, the project <i>Image Cities</i> by the Russian-American photographer Anastasia Samoylova is the winning proposal of the first edition of the KBr Photo Award, launched by the MAPFRE Foundation in 2021. The project is a unique visual study of the integration between the photographic image and the urban environment, built in general from the superimposition of collages. The project, which began in Moscow and New York in 2021, has been able to be completed in other cities such as Amsterdam, Paris, London, Brussels, Tokyo, Madrid and Barcelona thanks to the KBr Photo Award.
