Consuelo Kanaga. Catch the Spirit

What really interested the American photographer Consuelo Kanaga, passionate about social justice, more than photography were the people and their problems: social marginalization, poverty, racial harassment, inequality, and so on, especially in relation to the African-American population in the United States. Consuelo Kanaga was one of the few women who, as early as the 1910s, became a professional photojournalist in the United States.

This publication, published by Fundación MAPFRE and the Brooklyn Museum in New York in Spanish, Catalan and English, accompanies the exhibition Consuelo Kanaga. Catch the Spirit. This is the first major retrospective in more than thirty years on this important but little-known 20th century photographer.
