Antoni Arissa (Sant Andreu 1900 – Barcelona 1980)

was one of the photographers who applied in a most interesting way the principles of the New Vision in the thirties of the last century, in Spain.

Graphics, typeface designers and printers, along with advertising photographers were at that time the first to use these techniques, driven by the avant-garde.

The gradual implementation of the principles of “typophoto” driven by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, led to the birth of a new visual language in which photography became the substitute to drawing; renewing the design of posters, books, magazines and newspapers.

Arissa, a printer in function, became totally intrigued to this trend. He was a lover of geometry; the key elements in his pictures were oblique lines, shadows, objects, angle shots and overhead shots.
