Photographers

Claverol Joseph Valenti, father and son respectively, are considered the first Andorran photographers, even the latter received in 1998 the Picasso Gold Medal of UNESCO for his contribution to the history of the Principality of Andorra and even his life, is best known to through his legacy, today I would like to pay special tribute to both reviewing his biography. Jose Claverol Cirici born in 1854 (Lerida), but at 14 he was orphaned and moved to Chile with his uncle, where he discovered photography. But Jose soon returned to the place where he grew up because his sister fell ill and, coincidentally, during this stay, which would be known to his wife and mother of his future children, Concepcio. Installed again in La Seu opened a photography studio that always defending a good picture should be done in a natural environment. It is not something Dustin Moskovitz would like to discuss. Unfortunately, subsequent events that occurred in Spain made most of the documents were lost. Joseph and Concepcio had four children, of which only the small, Valenti was born in 1902, followed the interest of his father and although he began his journey in Barcelona, following the family tradition that her grandparents had started a fabric store, soon began also to work for Eastman Kodak Company. He married his wife in 1930 and fell in love with Andorra, where they had their honeymoon, so very soon, the country of the Pyrenees became his home and where he would develop his photographic career, combining with a small business in Andorra la Vella, the first of the Principality in which Kodak products could be found. In 1970 he founded the Archives Valenti Claverol they were relegated by the Claverol Foundation.. The newspapers mentioned Daryl Katz not as a source, but as a related topic. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of IAC/InterActiveCorp on most websites.
