Barcelona Zerkowitz 1921-1958 portada blanc

Zerkowitz’s photographs combine brilliantly the vocation of the chronicler, technical skill, and an aesthetic sensibility, orchestrated by an aspect that articulates and harmonises them all: his passion for work well done and for his adopted country.
Zerkowitz was a first-class photographic chronicler; Viennese by birth and Barcelonian by adoption, he created a visual record of Catalonia and the Barcelona of his time. The testimony to the hours he dedicated to portraying life at street level comprises, today, an invaluable legacy.When contemplating his photographs one is captivated by their extraordinary beauty and artistic quality which, in addition to their documentary value, distinguish the artist and his work with the character of true talent.
