Barcelona 1959 – Leopoldo Pomés

A woman in the middle of Las Ramblas. Another woman walking down Balmes street, a man from Barcelona, a doorman at the entrance of some house in the Eixample, anonymous pedestrians walking along the Ramblas… black and white images that tell the story of a city from a particular epoch in time. A tremendous amount of compressed humanity in 80 photographs by Leopoldo Pomés, making up an overall view of Barcelona from the late fifties. This is a photographic project that lay dormant for more than half a century, stored in the drawers of a cabinet. The texts are in Catalan, Spanish and English.
