With more than 150 spectacular images, this book shows an exceptional graphic portrait of the city of Madrid from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day, by the great names of photography, to which is added a documented essay by way of prologue by the writer Antonio Muñoz Molina . In his words, Beauty, in a city like Madrid, is in what happens in the blink of an eye, in the inflection of a look or a gesture, in a compositional harmony that has only come into being because it captures it. a photographer, but who would otherwise disappear without a trace. In Madrid there is almost no landscape other than the human landscape, which is the privileged territory of photography .
