Norte De Africa

This is a stunning collection of images - most never before seen - from Ortiz Echague, one of Spain's greatest photographers. Ortiz Echague is undoubtedly one of the greatest masters of 20th-century Spanish photography - in 1935, American Photography Magazine named him one of the top three photographers in the world. His series Norte de Africa, mostly unseen before now, brings together an evocative collection of images taken in North Africa. Echague attempted to publish the series in the mid-1960s, but the project never came to fruition. The fact that it was his last photography project shows the importance that this part of Ortiz Echague's work had for him. His photographic career, if may be said, started and ended looking at the North of Africa.
