It is a Spanish photographer - Ramon Masats. A great photographer. Always
reminds me of Haas - they both did colour and BW. My fave photo of Masats is
a protrait of Franco where Franco's head is hidden by microphones and the
clipboard he is reading from. You can see his hands - all this takes up
about a third of the frame and there is this huge empty space. A very
political portrait. I have a book of his 'Fotografia which supported an
exhibition last year (ISBN 84-7782-613-7).
