Koldo Chamorro, El Santo Christo Ibérico
Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
Koldo Chamorro was a self-taught photographer since 1965, when he was awarded a scholarship in 1972 for photographic studies abroad, thus being able to work with Ansel Adams, Brassaï and Ernst Haas, among others. He was a member of the Minority Photographers of New York. In Spain he joined the already dissolved Alabern group and participated in the documentary stream since the 80s. He collaborated in the conservation of an imaginary about to disappear. His gaze was maturing towards more complex forms and more personal issues. The photographic series of ‘El Santo Christo Ibérico’, shows the Catholic cross as the protagonist of a narrative that reveals the contradictions of a country that craves modernity but is anchored in old customs.
Koldo Chamorro de Aranzadi (1949 - 2009) was a Spanish photographer, with an active career of 40 years. He made documentary reports of anthropological and ethnographic structures, interested in the rites and symbols of the country, the Christian cross, bullfights or cultural and religious traditions.
