España Oculta [Hidden Spain] is arguably the most important Spanish photographic work ever published. What started as a five-year project in 1973 ended up lasting 15 years and came to be a unique anthropological encyclopedia of Spain's disappearing folklore and religious rites.

García Rodero's work also captured a key moment in Spain’s history —with dictator Franco dying in 1975, and the country commencing a period of transition into democracy—something that would come to have a huge effect on the way the nation’s cultural traditions and rites were experienced and performed from then on. While urban society was taking giant strides in terms of industrialization and development, rural areas were being left behind. While avoiding visual clichés, España Oculta is the living account of change in a country often portrayed as archaic and conservative, where matters like religion, family and tradition are deeply ingrained.
