n 1979 Margaret Thatcher was elected Prime Minister of Great Britain; in 1989 the Berlin Wall fell. One decade and two historical events that transformed Europe and the world and served as the frame of other social, cultural and technological revolutions: the application of protocols that would give rise to virtual communication networks (TCP and IP), England’s “no future”, the “end of history” in the United States… This volume, which compiles the photographs from the exhibition Transiciones (Transitions), held as part of PHotoEspana 2016, shows the evolution in the photographer’s eye from the 1980s, when they sensed the end of industrial society, to the 1990s, when it strived to adapt to the onset of globalisation and the new way of assimilating the world it brought about. The book contains the works of Chris Killip, Graham Smith, Martin Parr, Jean Marc Bustamante, Candida Hofer, Axel Hutte, Tata Ronkholz, Thomas, Ruff, Frank Breuer, Wilhelm Schurmann, Boris Mikhailov, Sergey Chilikov, Heinrich Riebesehl and Josef Koudelka, among others.
