"Why is there a woman lying cheerfully in a coffin in the middle of a crowd? And what kind of bishop is that with a naked beauty on his cape? Cristóbal Hara's photographs show an undiscovered Spain, far from its beautiful beaches and urban centers, with its ordinary people and animals, and their peculiarities. The images require close examination as they reveal the extraordinary in the ordinary. On the streets, at processions and markets, funerals and bullfights, Hara's camera captures the hustle and bustle of the provinces. An Imaginary Spaniard tells of joy, sorrow, loneliness and companionship and creates a fairy-tale world out of sadness and enchantment."
