The art director, producer and photographer Jaume de Laiguana selects 158 large-format photographs taken over the last 15 years to illustrate his professional career, works all infused with his personal vision of art and clear social engagement.

The show, entitled Jaume de Laiguana. Photography Exhibition. Retrospective 1997-2012, will be open to the public until May 26 at Palau Robert (Diagonal Metro Station). Organised by the Government of Catalonia in cooperation with Barcelona City Council, the initiative is sponsored by COSMIC.

The photographs and accompanying videos illustrating de Laiguana’s approach to his work, reveal the talent, highly personal gaze and methods employed by this photographer who believes, not in perfection, but in the beauty of the imperfect.

The exhibition provides a broad retrospective in which Jaume de Laiguana presents his photographic works and the processes he uses to prepare and produce them, giving the spectator insight into his day-to-day procedures. Moreover, this show marks a turning-point in his trajectory as a photographer, as he begins to distance himself from advertising to focus on more artistic and personal photography, taking his first steps in the world of art.

Opening hours from 10 am to 8 pm (Monday to Suturday).  Sunday and Holidays from 10 am to 2.30 pm. Free entrance. For further information visit the exhibition website.
