It is an engaging and superbly illustrated looked the work of celebrated Spanish photographer Joaquim Gomis. Joaquim Gomis was a businessman, photographer, patron of the arts and the first president of the Fundacio Joan Miro in Barcelona (1972-1975). For over five decades his photographic output was prodigious and had close links with the ground-breaking currents of the time. This book is divided into two sections. "The Oblique Gaze" shows the photographer's output from 1922 to 1939, a period in which Gomis produced innovative, pioneering work. In the second section, Visual Narration, we see how in the 1940s Gomis began to systematically use series of photographs as an analytical method of working that was to culminate in the creation of photoscopes - albums in which he developed a visual language somewhere between that of the cinema and of reportage to document the work of his contemporaries such as Joan Miro, Antoni Tapies and Antoni Gaudi.
