COLLECTION / 1945-1989 / Spain / Luis Baylón

570 items

Luis Baylón (Madrid, 1958) enrolled in the Law Faculty at the Complutense University in 1975. In 1976, he acquired his first camera and joined the photography school Photocentro. Self-taught, he began to collaborate with publications such as La Luna de Madrid, Ajoblanco and El Canto de la Tripulación. The recipient of the Community of Madrid’s Photography Award in 2000 and the Endesa Grant in 2005, he has exhibited at the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid (1996), Canal de Isabel II (2001) and the Museo de las Peregrinaciones (Santiago de Compostela, 2005). His published works include Tarde de toros, Solo fumadores, Par de dos, Ladrones de corazones and Autogarabato.

Archivo Lafuente holds nearly five hundred and seventy photographs by Luis Baylón, of which more than half correspond to those published in Madrid en plata (La Bahía/This Side Up, 2021). They are grouped in diptychs and triptychs, dating from 1984 to 2017. The remaining images belong to the ‘Movida’ years: "Mi rollo los 80", "La baskita de los 80" and "Un personaje". This collection also contains the photographs that appeared in El Canto de la Tripulación (1989-1997), a magazine that showed part of his “Madrid" series. The Baylón Collection is rounded out by two other series, entitled "Putas" and "Rastro", as well as by a number of unpublished images from the ‘Movida’ era. In addition, the first photographs from series such as "Par de dos" and "Animalada" can be found in this set.
