COLLECTION / 1945-1989 / Spain / Javier Campano

2000 items

The Javier Campano Collection consists of some eight hundred and fifty—mostly vintage—black and white photographs, as well as more than one thousand working negatives and a selection of printed material (posters, publications and press clippings).

This set of photographs spans the mid-1970s to the 1990s and includes many of the subjects he has treated in his work: urban landscapes, interiors/still life, portraits and self-portraits. It is made up of three major sections: more than 200 images taken in Madrid, his native city, between 1975 and 1986; another 200 captured during his travels—Egypt (1975), Italy (1975 and 1976), the United States (1983); and more than 200 portraits from the seventies and eighties of artists, filmmakers, photographers, gallery owners and other public figures. In addition to these sections, the collections boasts a set of photographs related to his participation in the Ojo Móvil team (of which some 50 period photographs, more than 1,000 working negatives and related printed material are preserved), which demanded fairer urban planning policies in order to improve conditions in Madrid’s neighborhoods; a preserved set of his first photographs shown in exhibitions (Photocentro in 1979 and Buades in 1985), including a selection of his Polaroids; 2 photo folders that contain Allan Kaprow and Charlotte Moorman’s performances at the Vandrés Gallery in June 1975, and, finally, a collection of self-portraits.
