FOTOTEKA

Our collections: photo reportages covering the history of Gipuzkoa.

The Kutxa Fototeca (photograph library) collections reflect the development of the social, political and cultural life of Gipuzkoa from the beginning of the 20th century up until today: the landscape, festivals and customs, sports (car races on the Lasarte track, boat races, cycling, rural sports, etc.), social events, the monarchy, the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, the war in Africa, the Republic, the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), figures from the literary, political and cultural world, bull-fighting, etc.

Two collections stand out in particular owing to their size and quality and because they are very full photo reportages: Marín photo album and Fotocar photo album which are the ones we are now making available on this web site.

We will be gradually incorporating other collections from our photograph library, like: Iparralde, Photomuseum, Javier Gallego, Arturo Delgado, Carlos Villagrán, Víctor Charola, José Aristizabal, Alberto Martínez Benito, etc.
