Xavier Miserachs is one of the most famous Spanish photographers of the 20th century, an outstanding representative of the young and non-conformist generation of the 1950’s/60’s that decided to take distance from conventional and academic photography to reclaim a new visual identity.
Xavier Miserachs can be considered a paradigm of his generation, he not only had an extraordinary passion for the photographic art, but also wanted to make a living out of it. This is how he got the amazing opportunity to make his passion for the medium become his work as a correspondent for well known media such as La Vanguardia, Gaceta Ilustrada, Intervíu and Triunfo. At the same time, Miserachs started to participate in numerous group shows with other photographers like Ricard Terré or Ramon Massats and started to work on publications such as Barcelona Blanco y Negro (1964) if we had to name just one.
