Lewis Baltz

This is the first exhibition in Spain of the work of American photographer Lewis Baltz and the first international retrospective of his photos since his death in 2014. Baltz's images reveal the suburbs that proliferate in the outskirts of cities, and the landscape as occupied territory. Not for nothing, the California artist belonged to the generation of the New Topographics, which questioned the idea of the landscape as a beautiful and existential, almost sacred, image, and instead showed it as factual, a reality that is nearly always the result of unfortunate acts of humans.
