Marcel Giró


Paris Photo 2022

10-13 November 2022

RocioSantaCruz continues the labor of disseminating the outstanding work of Palmira Puig (Lleida, 1912-Barcelona, 1979) and Marcel Giró (Badalona, 1912 – Barcelona, 2011), creators who fled the Civil War and became members of the Foto Cine Clube Bandeirante in Brazil, together with the photographer Germán Lorca (São Paulo, 1922 – Ibidem, 2021).
Three artists who knew how to capture a modern spirit that focused on formal experimentation to which they applied a lively interest in everyday gestures. Such was the quality of their work that their photographs were recently included in the exhibition “Fotoclubismo: Brazilian Modernist Photography and the Foto-Cine Clube Bandeirante, 1946–1964” organized by the MOMA in New York, from May to September 2021.
