New page for Hereus de Joan Vilatobá

Joan Vilatobà i Fígols (1878 – 1954) was a Spanish photographer who boosted the pictorialism style in Catalonia. He was also a painter and a teacher.

At the beginning of the 20th century he received several prizes for his pictorialist photographs. His photos consisted of planned scenes in line with what some authors define like Victorian pictorialism with biblical and mythological roots. He also used the techniques of this movement: bromoleo , bi- chromated rubber or carbon print.

From 1931 he dedicated himself to teaching in the Industrial School of Sabadell and also to the painting of which there are works in some museums.
