LET'S DO SPORT ... LET'S MAKE THE ARCHIVE. IGUALADA, SPORTING TOWN

Igualada has been nominated as European City of Sport 2019 and among the most faithful testimony of the role of sport in Igualada is the set of documents held by the town’s archive, especially graphic material. Over 3,000 pictures make up this collection, ranging from the late 19th century to the present, among them numerous photographs of sporting subjects.

With the Let’s Do Sport project … We’ve been building up the archive for two years now: the Anoia county archive is supporting the bid – once again – with a sports photography exhibition open to the general public and heading out into the streets with large-format pictures.

The exhibition, which can be seen around the streets of Igualada as well as at municipal sports facilities, is a display of the skilful eye of photographers Ramon Godó, Josep Castelltort, Ignasi Castelltort, Josep Bisbal and others, combining the art of photography with the emotional power that sports can give to pictures.
