Ouka Leele’s image is part of The Spanish National Photography Prize: Connections and Confrontations, a group exhibition exploring Spain’s photographic history and changing creative identity over the last sixty years. Displayed together for the first time in the United States, over sixty-five works by fifteen Spanish photographers—each a recipient of the Ministry of Culture’s esteemed Spanish National Photography Prize—illuminate the evolution of Spanish photographic art, captured through the lenses of some of the nation’s most respected artists. The exhibition opens November 19th, 2010 and runs through January 11, 2011 at Aperture Gallery in New York’s Chelsea art district.
