From the 11th July until the 18th September, the Circulo de Bellas Artes will be holding a photographic exhibition featuring images of people from over 150 countries and who currently reside in Madrid’s community. Seven accomplished photographers have taken pictures of people from countries as diverse as Ghana, South Africa, Niger, Croatia, Bulgaria, Brazil and Chile, to name but a few.

According to official statistics, around 14% of Madrid’s population are ‘immigrants’ and the Universo Mestizo (Mixed Race Universe) exhibition offers a unique view on the Madrid that they live in. The photos are accompanied by information on the places where the photos are taken and the country of origin of those within them.

The photograph above is taken from the Metropoli section of El Mundo‘s online newspaper, where you can view a brief selection of photos from the ‘Universo Mestizo’ exhibition.
