Fotógrafo Samot. Fotografía antigua El rio Nansa en Polaciones. Cantabria

 
Fotografía Samot (Tomás al reves) es un establecimiento fotógrafico que todavia existe hoy en Santander. Se dedica, entre otras cosas, a hacer tiradas actuales de sus negativos antiguos. Su origen se remonta a 1911 cuando dos hermanos abrieron un estudio en el Salón Pradera de Santander. Su labor se extendió tanto a la información como a fotografías de la región. El estudio fue destruido por el incendio de Santander de 1941.

70 años con Santander

A finales de los años 20, los hermanos Alejandro y Tomás Quintana, periodista y fotógrafo respectivamente, se unen para fundar un negocio de fotografía en pleno centro de Santander. Lo bautizaron con un anagrama del nombre uno de ellos - de Tomás a SAMOT- e iniciaron una trayectoria de 70 años que ya ha conocido a tres generaciones de propietarios dedicados a la óptica y la fotografía, conservando el espíritu del primer día y aplicando la tecnología de última hora.

In 1928 King Alfonso XIII created the National Tourism Board "Patronato Nacional de Turismo" (remember that tourism hotels are created in 1926) with the primary purpose of making known to all travelers Spain towns and monuments
Its predecessor was the National Commission of Tourism was created in 1905 by the Count of Romanones. Remember also, as background, that Spain was popular throughout Europe in the nineteenth century to be covered and inspiring travelers notables such as Manet, Teofilo Gautier or Washington Irving.
Photographs of the Directorate General of Tourism Board before, were a commission that became the leading photographers of each region at that time.
These photographs of the Directorate General of Tourism were to be used as the image of Spain in books and posters throughout the Spanish territory and all the tourist events that began to perform in the second half of the twentieth century.
These photos  of Spain include both monuments as people with special emphasis on country work and the sea labours when they were being replaced by more modern industrial processes. 
The general size of these photographs of the Directorate General of Tourism is 18x24 cm or 20x26 cm. They are usually stapled to a card which states the place, date and photographer who does it, sometimes even include some sort of comment.
These photographs of the Directorate General of Tourism as I used for the promotion of Spain and therefore may have been used for both posters to books to be supplied directly to individuals or institutions.
Some of the noted  photographers who made these pictures of the Directorate General of Tourism are:
  •   * Photographer Mateo with pictures of Malaga
  •    * Kindel ( Joaquin del Palacio) with pictures of Madrid and Ibiza, 
  • *Arranz with pictures of Granada (Pampaneira for example)
  •     * Lladó with photos of Ceuta and Morocco
  •     * Rafael Romero Urbistondo with pictures of Madrid
  •     * Ruiz bar with photographs of La Alberca,
  •     * Verdugo photographs of Andalucia (Vejer de la Frontera)
  •     * E. De la Vega with pictures of Lerida,
  •     * Virgilio Muro with the typical landscape ( molinos de viento) of La Mancha,
  •     * Ksado with its famous photograph of the Rua del Villar Santiago de Compostela,
  •     * Garrabella was also editor of postcards also worked as a photographer for the D. G. Tourism
I note especially two great photographers taking photographs for the Directorate General of Tourism: Catalá Roca Ortiz Echagüe.

Noted, finally, that his tourist status does not remove the quality of the artwork of the photos, and ethnographic character and crafts people today no longer has not been sufficiently studied.
Perhaps this is due to the image we have of these photos as "Official Spain" makes us ignore its value, simply, artistic, and coincide in time with the early work of foreign photographers showed another image of Spain from 1950 (remember the story of E. Smith for Life magazine)
Archive  of the Directorate General of Tourism is located in Alcalá de Henares in the Archives of the Administration.
