San Fermin festival and the running of the bulls historical photo exhibition

From the 7th of May an exhibition is based on the camerawork view of the fiestas from the likes of Cartier-Bresson, Morath, Massats, Ubiña, Koudelka and other photographers has opened in Pamplona. Among the famous faces captured by the cameras you and find Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, Deborah Kerr and Charlton Heston.

Until the fourth of September 2010, the exhibition of photos of Sanfermin fiestas down the years can be seen under the general exhibition title of "Fiesta." Eighty images from more than twenty photographers can be contemplated on the second floor of the Palacio del Condestable building in Pamplona. The personal viewpoint of the different authors on the fiestas is clearly contrasted in this exhibition. Koudelka, Morat, Masats and other photographers provide an insight into how the fiestas were during the decades of the fifties and sixties when the fiestas were not yet over-crowded and more indigenous, still waiting to be discovered by the globalised crowds of today.

This exhibition has been co-sponsored by The Government of Navarra and Pamplona City Hall through an agreement with the Instituto Cervantes. The exhibition has already been shown in different centers of the Instituto Cervantes around Europe.

If you are heading to Pamplona in 2010 for the festival of San Fermin this exhibition is not to be missed.
