The story of: A gentleman from Barcelona

A story that shows a way of life through a unique lens. A joyful experience in a house defined by its architecture. And a city, Barcelona.

This photo essay is a tribute by nanimarquina and Santa & Cole to Leopoldo Pomés, who lived in the house for more than 40 years, and to his archetype.

Entering the home of the well-known photographer of sensuality is a journey that invites us to reflect on our own environment and the objects with which we choose to share our existence.

Pomés is the author of some of the most sensual photos and iconic advertisements of the 1960s and 1970s. Daring, beauty and good taste are all attributes of his work.

The space invites one to imagine evenings of contemplation in the living room, or a Mediterranean afternoon, book in hand; a vermouth or a dip in the pool. The intimacy of home and the beauty of sharing.
