Life in Barcelona from the 1960s and 1970s Through the Lens of Colita

Isabel Steva also known as Colita, is one of the most renowned names in contemporary Catalan photography. She learned photography from Oriol Maspons, Julio Ubiña, and Xavier Miserachs. She soon developed her own unique style.

From 1963 to 1975, she focused on creating a series of portraits of Flamenco dancers and singers. She is considered the official photographer of Barcelona’s Gauche Divine because she is closely associated with the Catalan cultural movements of the era in which writers, photographers, models, architects, film directors, and many other professionals began to make their mark. She displays an inspiring level of frankness and humor in her photographs.
