Learn from the photography in one of the best collections.
Photography as an art.
The legacy of the pilot, engineer and photographer José Ortiz Echagüe (1886-1980), makes the 'Fondo Fotográfico de la Universidad de Navarra' a must-see for lovers of photography. Not only does it house the laboratory, material and the photographer's documentary collection, it has been expanding in recent years with new photographic collections that contribute to revealing the history of the printed image in Spain, since the 19th century to the present day. You'll find daguerreotypes, tintypes, albumins and salted papers, which are not only by Spanish photographers, famous international artists such as Clifford, Disdéri or Wheelhouse are also included. In addition to the heritage of Ortiz Echagüe, the 'Fondo Fotográfico' has also inherited the legacies of Juan Dolcet and the Count of la Ventosa, founder of the Royal Photographic Society of Madrid and photographer of social landscapes during the 20's and 30's.
