Leopoldo Pomés/Carlos Saura Exhibition. Portraits
On this fifth year of PhotoIreland, Instituto Cervantes Dublin introduces the work of two Spanish photographers. “Truths, Facts, Fictions, Lies” is the slogan for this year’s festival. Pomés and Saura offer us their distinct vision of portraits.
The exhibition Leopoldo Pomés/Carlos Saura. Portraits gathers a selection of photographs by both authors that spans their extensive and fruitful careers, from the Fifties in the 20th Century to date. It is centred on the portrait genre understood in its wider sense.
We therefore find portraits of anonymous people and even animals. Pomés and Saura belong to the same generation. Their work is highly regarded and their careers have evolved along similar paths.
