For decades, Cristina García Rodero has been an icon in the world of photography. She built her career meticulously focusing a lens on her native Spain, documenting the rich and robust festivals of the country she calls home. With a keen eye, she captured rites and rituals and, over the years, built up a catalogue that received worldwide recognition, garnering multiple national and global awards along the way. With exhibitions, collections on display, and a museum dedicated entirely to her work, García Rodero’s legacy has been canonized. Now in her 70s, she shows no sign of stopping. She continues to pursue her passion of creating awe-inspiring photographs. Her contributions to documenting Spanish identity and traditions for generations give viewers the opportunity to pause and reflect, and invite us into a robust, festive and diverse cultural history. Through intimate access to the artist and her work, we bear witness not only to one life, but to the lives of the many she captured and displayed to the world.
