Photographs by Inge Morath of Sanfermines in the 50s
“Inge Morth: San Fermín. The 1950s” is the title of the collection of 54 photographs that can be viewed in the Palacio del Condestable of Pamplona until August 24th. The Palacio is located in the Calle Mayor in the old part of town.
Inge Morath is from Austria, but she lived Sanfermines through her camera lens to show future generations images in lack and white of the encierros, the Giants and Big-Headed Little people of papier mâché, bullfights and extraordinary shots of Antonio Ordónez, one of the greatest matadors of all times, dresing for the ring. The photographs were taken after Spain´s Civil War and stand as a sociological, historical and even sentimental document of Pamplona and its fiesta.
The show can be seen until August 24th from 9 to 14 hours and from 17 to 21 hours. During Sanfermines, it can be visited on July 8, 10, 12, 12 and 13 from 11 o 14 hours. The Palacio del Condestable will remain closed on July 6, 7, 9 and 14.
