17 Nov 2005-31 March 2006. The Monumental Ensemble of the Plaa del Rei is hosting a photography exhibition which spans almost 150 years of Barcelonas history, as seen through the camera lenses of foreign visitors and locals alike. Divided into three main sections entitled Looks and Glances, Spaces and Society, the exhibition is a celebration of the changing Barcelona cityscape, with the earliest photos dating from 1860. The main body of work is modern and explores images of urban life in the Catalan capital, from derelict housing in the El Raval district to the glories of Moderniste architecture in Eixample. Within the Looks and Glances section, photos are grouped under various headings including La Cuidad Vacia (the Old Town), Nocturna (Nightscapes), Imprevista (the Unexpected) and La Otra Cuidad (the Other Barcelona). A photography competition is being held concurrently to encourage the involvement of locals and schools. Admission 4 concessions 2.50 Under 16s free. Tues-Sat 10.00-14.00 & 16.00-20.00 Sun 10.00-15.00.
