A photographic celebration of the great Spanish city, from Alfonso to Thomas Struth

This volume includes more than 150 photographs by some of the greatest names in photography, both Spanish and international, together with an exhaustive essay by the writer Antonio Muñoz Molina on Madrid's illustrious history as a subject for photography.
It includes the brilliant photographs of Alfonso, perhaps the greatest graphic chronicler of Madrid at the beginning of the 20th century; the prewar and wartime images of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa and Gerda Taro; the postwar portraits of William Klein, Francesc Català-Roca and Ramón Masats, among others; the post-Franco developing society immortalized by photographers from Spain and elsewhere such as Gianni Ferrari; the mythical images of the Movida in Madrid by Alberto García-Alix; and the cultural and economic environment of the 21st century through the eyes of Cristina García Rodero and Thomas Struth.
Photographers include: Alfonso, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Francesc Català-Roca, Raymond Depardon, Alberto García-Alix, Cristina García Rodero, William Klein, Ouka Leele, Ramón Masats, Inge Morath, Francisco Ontañón, Carlos Saura, Thomas Struth, Gerda Taro and Miguel Trillo.
