These days there are two exhibitions in Barcelona's downtown that in my opinion really worth a visit. You'll love both if you're curious and you like photography, fashion and beauty.

First, you need to go to the Loewe Gallery. This space is recently open to the public, at 91 Passeig de Gracia St, with 580 square meters spread over 5 levels, the exhibition focuses on the emblematic Loewe bags. For me, the most interesting part are the photos of Scott Schuman, creator of the blog "The Sartorialist". Schuman created his blog in 2005 and currently receives over 350,000 visits a day...! He was one of the first photographers to take an interest in the "Street Style", capturing street fashion, leaving apart the coldness and superficiality of the fashion shows. Many see him as a fashion guru, but what I see are some beautiful and peculiar photos. But take a look at his blog, the photos are so eye-catching. It’s shown until November 1 in the same gallery.

Next, you have to go to Palau Robert. This little palace owns dozens of exhibitions throughout the year. Currently, in the garden of Palau Robert you will find the exhibition "Catalunya vista pels instagramers” (Catalonia seen by Instagramers). There you'll find the winner photos of the contest organized by the Catalan Tourism Agency, who wants to show some of the main attractions of Catalonia through Instagram photos. We can enjoy these images from day 5.10.12 until day 18.11.12

In the same exhibition you will find a small album of Instagram photos. This is a very unique album. You can download the application Instagrafic on your phone from which you can select your favorite Instagram photos. Then you can choose the format of the album and then send it to Instagrafic where they print out the album. In these photos you can see how beautiful they are.

Well, I hope you enjoy both exhibitions!
