My father’s father, Manuel Martínez de la Victoria y Fernández de Liencres, was born in Granada on the 27th of February 1872, and died on June 13th of 1956 at the age of 84.”
“(…) He used to show me his beloved Granada during our walks around the city. Thanks to him, I discovered the most beautiful spots of the city, as well as visiting its museums.”
María de los Ángeles Martínez de Victoria Muñoz wrote these words about one of the most unique personalities of Granada. His photographic work provided plenty of information about the Granada of the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.
His passion was not only photography; he was also a hot-air balloon pilot.
