Pestana, a verdade entre as mans rescues and values an unknown author, despite his very high quality, and who represents one of the most relevant names in 20th century Latin American photography.
A situation generated, in part, by being a photographer who did not give importance, which does not mean that he lacked artistic awareness, since it was this talent that placed him as the great portraitist of the Generation of the 50's -in his stage in Peru- or as the author of a denunciation photograph with characters from the street, at the level of the great masters of the movement.
The exhibition, which is the result of a new collaboration between the Fundación Cidade da Cultura and the Instituto Cervantes, is the largest and most complete exhibition of Pestana until today, with a total of 150 photographs and documents relating to the artist's professional career (Life, Times or Squire magazines, etc.), as well as personal objects. All of them will enrich the exhibition itinerary, revealing the life and work of the photographer, who is part not only of the memory and cultural heritage of Galicia, but also of the rest of Spain and of countries such as Peru and France, where he worked.
