Ojos de Buey is an archive dedicated to documentary photography made in Spain in the last fifty years; a series of periodicals, each focusing on a particular work by a male or female photographer.
Based on this collection, the archive aims to highlight the country’s intrahistory, culture and counterculture and disseminate the work of authors who have portrayed its various social realities, offering testimonies of the everyday as well as the exceptional.
The fifth volume of the collection includes a report never previously published in its entirety by Pilar Aymerich about a group of women imprisoned during the Transition, how they had to take charge of the prison, and the feminist struggle to dignify their lives. The photojournalist Pilar Aymerich is a key figure in the social, feminist and cultural awakening of late Francoism and the Transition, and winner of the 2021 National Photography Award.
