  • Description: Ever since the last third of the 19th century, intellectuals have frequently been amateur photographers and they provided some very interesting work that has been recognized by researchers and scholars. The Instituto Valencia de Don Juan (Madrid) possesses a collection of 276 negatives shot between 1893 and 1902 by Adela Crooke, the Countess of Valencia de Don Juan and wife of Guillermo de Osma Scull. These negatives are of exceptional importance due to their content, covering highly diversified subject matter, including hunting, bullfighting, sports, animals, the militia, the royal family and visits to different cities, especially Madrid. The purpose of this study is to highlight the value of the collection, analyze and document Crooke's originals in relation with the context of the institution and bring to light the role of women in Spanish photography.
