Although Spanish photojournalist Emilio Morenatti’s dedication to exposing the fragility of war-torn failed states has earnt him countless accolades including Newspaper Photographer of the Year, it has also got him injured in Afghanistan and kidnapped in Gaza.
Now, recovered from his injury from an Afghan bomb blast in 2009, the photographer is taking 76 of the best images he took in his time in Palestine and Afghanistan around Spain having already stopped off in Gijón and Seville.
Armilla is the next visit for the committed photographer’s collection which comprises of sharp-coloured images set in the backdrop of war-torn countries in an exhibition which Morenatti hopes captures the reality faced in such countries.
Pablo Juliá, director of the organisation putting on the exhibition, the Centro Andaluz de la Fotografía, said of the photographer, “he is an outstanding representative of photojournalism from our country”, adding that his photos provide a new “informative dimension” to the conflicts.
