Leopoldo Pomés

With a versatile personality embracing cinema, advertising or restaurant management, Leopoldo Pomés (Barcelona, 1931) became known as a photographer in 1955 when he presented in the Galeries Laietanes of Barcelona (where the most important avant-garde exhibitions of the time were held) a display of photographs which broke with what had been seen until then and attracted the enthusiasm of some and uttered outrage exclamations from others. Since then, he has never abandoned photography and has had diverse exhibitions of which the most significant was the selective exhibition Leopoldo Pomés. Imatges 1955-1997 (Leopoldo Pomés. Images 1955-1997) (La Virreina, Barcelona, 1997). His production as photographer is quite varied and orientated towards different fields such as portrait, daily life or architecture. His three books on the latter are worth pointing out: La arquitectura modernista (Modernist Architecture) (Editorial Lumen, Barcelona, 1968), Arquitectura y lágrimas (Architecture and Tears) (Tusquets Editor, Barcelona, 1975) and Gaudí, arquitectura de la anticipación (Gaudí, Architecture Ahead of its Time) (Polígrafa, Barcelona, 1967), where he features a particular perspective on Gaudí's architectural work. He has carried out diverse commercial and institutional advertising campaigns such as the film Candidatura Olímpica (Olympic Candidature) (COOB, Barcelona, 1986), which contributed to the designation of Barcelona as the city to hold the 1992 Olympic Games
