One of the many powers of photography is its ability capture the moment, and that moment, like fine wine, gains value and meaning as time passes. Photojournalism is the art of telling without saying anything and at the same time saying everything. Photojournalists are chroniclers of history: their camera shoots and a moment in time is saved. National Geographic, one of the great institutions of photojournalism, has some of these works on exhibit Reial Cercle Artístic.
'Women. A century of change' is a collection of around 50 photographs that tell the story of the evolution of the role of women in society over the last 100 years. The route of the exhibition, which is divided into six sections – joy, beauty, love, wisdom, strength and hope – is a journey to all the continents on the planet and a diverse look at what women represent and have represented.
Black, white, poor, rich, young, old ... the diversity that the entire exhibition portrays is one of the strengths of an exhibition that aims to bear witness to how the world view of women has evolved. It does a good job of illustrating that our world would be nothing without women. The collection was previously exhibited at the National Geographic Museum in Washington and briefly at the Palacio de Gaviria in Madrid.
