THE TRANSATLANTIC GALLERY OF GAZES, or AMERICANS WATCHING SPAIN WATCH NEW YORK

The photographs appearing below were taken by Wesleyan's Siri Carr ('15) during her recent semester in Spain. They are photos of photos on display in various Spanish cities in the fall of 2012, as part of the exhibit "Castilla-La Mancha y Nueva York en armonía." The photographers featured in that exhibit are José Ramón Ayllón Talavera and Víctor Prieto Iranzo.

In her own photographs, we see Siri focusing on the way Spanish photographers have sought to establish a transatlantic dialog with their camera. The complex crisscrossing of transnational gazing suggested by these photographs merits our posting this page, and we are grateful to Siri for the permission to do so.
