V ariations in Spain. Photography and Art 1900-1980 is a book that collects photographs taken in Spain by 38 Spanish and foreign photographers at different historical moments.

Through three hundred photographs, the research carried out by Horacio Fernández begins with examples of the different models of pre-modern photographic languages : the representation of human types (racial, national, folkloric, tourist), archival documentation and the landscape. José María Álvarez de Toledo, Count of La Ventosa; Antoni Campaña; Alvin Langdon Coburn; Adolf Mas and José Ortiz Echagüe are some of them.

The second section is dedicated to modern photography . It takes place in the thirties and it includes authors who practice precise photography in their reports on Spain (Brandt, Cartier-Bresson, Krull, Munkacsi), as well as other photographers (Benítez, Casas, Kaskel, Paniagua, Suárez) who They show portraits, urban views, tourism or the report.

The images of Misiones Pedagogicas, mostly by José Val del Omar, are highlighted in the third chapter as an example of collective photography that responds to a political and cultural program . The photography of the Spanish Civil War is presented through the work of Renau, Heartfield, rearguard images by Reuter and military portraits by Jalón Ángel.

After the post-war parenthesis, the following chapter exposes the work of a new group that worked in the fifties and sixties close to the coordinates of international documentary filmmaking at the time, such as W. Eugene Smith and Robert Frank. Secondly, special attention is paid to the Terré-Masats-Miserachs exhibitions of 1957 and 1959, which meant a break with the type of photography that had been dominant until then; and the work of Vieitez, Vielba and Cualladó. A third space presents works from the sixties and seventies, in which the fundamental element is the use of color photography.

The fifth chapter highlights the work of Miralles, Hidalgo, Pazos, Gordillo, among others, and closes with the "new documents" of Valcárcel Medina, Fontcuberta and García Rodero.
