Lola Falcon lived all around the world with her husband, writer and diplomat Luis Enrique Delano, taking photos prolifically. This book display the spirit of her life and particular point of view, travel and the 20th century context. Her streets and shots of the general public are perhaps the most interesting however, capturing everyday life in the 40’s in great detail. People’s clothes are fantastic: some wear long black coats and caps, some tight sailor-pants and stripy tees. Hair is curled, lipstick applied for that classic 40’s look.
The photographic work of Lola Falcon is a cultural and historical heritage of great importance, both for its thematic variety and for the multiculturalism in her work.
