“I have tendency it was doing the filth”
Paco Gómez

 

Paco Gómez (Pamplona, 1918 – Madrid 1998) was one of the big teachers of the photo of the XXth century. He was a big artist, but also a big stranger. He was one of the integral photographers of the group AFAL (Photographic Group Almeriense) that developed its activity (by means of a magazine bring in other means) during 1956 – 1963. Its work with a subject-matter and formal style has a genuine stamp. He was considered to be the poet of the walls, the tracks, the naked spaces and the small objects.

This group AFAL contributed a new way of doing photos. There were times of postwar period and Almeria an isolated area, depauperada. We can imagine the big difficulties of starting a cultural project as his in a moment in which the professional photo did not exist not the photojournalism. A magazine “poor person and kidling” but realized with many demand (in words of the police station of the exhibition Laura Terré). A very mixed group formed by young people of between 16 and 30 years. Paco Gómez was the biggest of them. A group that contributed the photo as transmission of the life.

Paco Gómez, poet of the walls, also left to us a poetry that sums its knowledge up with the photos camera:

The rain,
the spot of the hand of a child,
the mud salmagundi against the lime of a wall,
the trace of the form of the concrete,
a broken crystal,
the bloomed touch of the moisture in the plaster,
the frosts of many winters,
the heats of many summers …

There are calm things,
silently lit in the air.
There are things that it seems
as if they were remaining forever stop.
As if the time was not with them.
There are real, concrete things.
So much, that overcome the world of
what we understand for realism.

They happen somehow on him and
they are located in that another impalpable field
in that the thoughts are never finished
and they connect easily with the sleep.
Abstractizan.

In this field, so beautiful,
everything is far from the snapshot.
Everything is far from the gesture, the reception
sudden of a dynamic action.
There is time in abundance to think,
to sleep and to ruminate with conscientious and dull
premeditation every photo.

I like.

“Paco Gómez. Order and disorder” is the first retrospective exhibition devoted to this photographer after its death. San Benito presents before himself in Valladolid, in the Room, comisariada for Laura Terré and it assembles nearly 75 original photos endorsed by the proper author.

Laura Terré (Vigo, 1959) is one of the biggest specialists in Spanish photo of the 50s and 60s. It realized its thesis on the Group AFAL of which he was a member out-standing Paco Gómez. Terré emphasizes from the artist its simplicity and the base of its work: austerity and silence. 75 works that shape the exhibition, in words of the police station, constitute “indisputable masterpieces” of the artistic trajectory of Gómez between 1957 and 1995. In them walls appear, mediators, fronts (as in Traces, 1960, or Christ, 1959) and some sceneries (Tramcar in the walk of Extremadura, 1959). There are realized images, the black and white majority (from the 80s in color) that represents an artist who was standing out for its particular vision of understanding the photo based on forms and simple and pure lines.

Trajectory
From Pamplona its family, to little of its birth, moves to Madrid. Its first steps as simple fan will lead him to joining, 1956, the Photographic Royal society of Madrid. One year later it collaborated with the group AFAL of Almeria. Its international throwing took place in 1962 on having received an invitation of the Commission of French Tourism to take part in the exhibition “11 Spanish photographers in Paris”. Between 1959 and 1974 there collaborates with the magazine Architecture, a publication edited by the Architects' School of Madrid. In life three monographic exhibitions of the author were realized: in Els Quatre Gats of Barcelona in the frame of the Photographic Spring of Catalunya (1984), in the Gallery Forvm of Tarragona (1987) and in the head office of the Foundation “the Caixa” of Barcelona (1995). Its work is in important public and private collections, between which those of the National museum emphasize Center of Art Queen Sophia (MNCARS), Madrid; the Valencian Institute of Modern art (IVAM), Valencia; the Telephone Foundation, Madrid; the Andalusian Center of Contemporary art (CAAC), Seville; the Royal Academy of Fine arts of San Fernando, Madrid, or the Town hall of Alcobendas.

Paco Gómez in Colectania

 

Paco Gómez died in 1998. Three years after its death, its heirs agreed to transfer all its file to the Foundation Photo Colectania, which since then preserves it, it catalogs and spreads.
Also, the photographic file of Paco Gómez can already consult in Internet across the web page of the Foundation Photo Colectania:
The exhibition has been coproduced by the Town hall of Pamplona and the Delegation of Huesca and sponsored by Fundació Banc Sabadell, and it will be possible to see in the Room of San Benito in Valladolid until May 1, 2012.
