Manuel Perez Barriopedro is a Spanish photographer. He was born in 1947. He began working as a photographer at EFE Agency where he was preparing materials to reveal the reels. He photographed during the 60 the Spanish streets in the last years of Franco and the beginning of the transition. He was chief photographer, editor and deputy director of graphic of the EFE Agency.

 His photographs are in black and white. He tries to portray the cruel reality that the Spanish lived during the last years of the dictatorship. He also tries to reflect the suffering of the people and the political problems that occurred in those years.

His most famous picture is that of Lt. Col. Antonio Tejero in the Congress of Deputies. On February 23, 1981 occurred in Spain a military coup and Manuel Perez got this photograph because he was inside the Congress and he managed to hide his camera. According to El Pais this photography was named “Attempted coup in Spain”. This photo won World Press Photo of the Year and the National Journalism Award.

In an interview conducted by the University Miguel Hernández de Elche in the Sixth Conference of Journalism, Manuel Perez explained that day he could only do 11 pictures but with the technological advances of today could have taken 11,000 photographs.

I have chosen this photographer because I think your picture of Antonio Tejero was key to the history of Spain. In that picture can get an idea of what happened that day in the House of Representatives and how hard it was to end the dictatorship in Spain.
