The Spanish National Photography Prize: Connections and Confrontations presented by Aperture in collaboration with the Spanish Ministry of Culture will debut for the first time in the United States at Aperture’s gallery. This exhibit brings together sixty-five works by fifteen Spanish photographers and winners of the Ministry of Culture’s National Photography Prize. The show seeks to collectively consider the evolution of Spain’s photographic and creative history.

Alexander Gronsky’s The Edge will also be on view. Gronsky is the 2009 Aperture Portfolio Prize winner, this will be his solo show debut in New York. The artist’s photographs of Moscow capture the ambiguity of idyllic-like spots which upon close examination are revealed to be nestled in the midst of urban metropolis. These spaces where city dwellers find solace in nature interact with, but do not seem connected to, their greater contexts.
