“la mirada del viatger”

La mostra “la mirada del viatger” recull un conjunt de fotografies de Mallorca, Menorca i Eivissa de principis del segle XX dels fons fotogràfics de la Biblioteca de Catalunya. L’exposició reflecteix la mirada de set autors diferents, Leandre Cervera, Guillem Bestard, Juli Soler, Francesc Matheu, Frederic Mompou, Josep Salvany i Joan Nonell, que influenciats per l’anomenat “excursionisme científic” van captar amb la seva càmera la gent i els paisatges de les Balears.
