This book of more than 150 photographs shows an exceptional portrait of Madrid from the beginning of the 19th century to the present, together with a prologue signed by the writer Antonio Munoz Molina. Its pages show the great photographs of Alfonso, perhaps the greatest graphic chronicler of Madrid at the beginning of the 20th century; the prewar and war images of Henri Cartier- Bresson, Robert Capa and Gerda Taro; the postwar portrait of William Klein, Francesc Catala-Roca, Ramon Masats, Inge Morath or Cas Oorthyus; the incipient development society that photographers like Gianni Ferrari, Ferdinando Scianna or Joana Biarnes immortalized; the Madrid Movement of Alberto Garcia- Alix, Miguel Trillo, Ouka Leele or Pablo Perez Minguez; and the cultural, social and economic environment of the 21st century from the perspective of Cristina Garcia Rodero, Alex Webb or Thomas Struth. A tour of the historical, architectural, cultural, sporting events... that have marked daily life, the urban landscape and the unique character of the capital.
