«The distance between them is to be measured not in terms of the relative force or originality of their work, but in terms of their conceptions of what a photograph is: is it a mirror, reflecting a portrait of the artist who made it, or a window, through which one might better know the world?»

John Szarkowski, 1978 (Mirrors and windows: American photography since 1960, p. 25)

Espentana is an exhibition space, whose name comes from the union of the Spanish words "espejo" (mirror) and "ventana" (window)
