Barcelona’s Majestic Hotel to Host Jean-Daniel Lorieux’s Fashion Photography

(Majestic Hotel Barcelona)

Traveling to Barcelona in the autumn? The Majestic Hotel & Spa— which has been a landmark on Passeig de Gràcia since 1918— will be hosting a unique, month-long exhibition of fashion photography starting October 9. Jean-Daniel Lorieux first found fame in the 1970s with now-iconic photos for the likes of Vogue magazine. Over his 30-year career, Lorieux captured top models including Li Sellgren, Stephanie Seymour, Terry Tate and Karen Mulder, and celebrities like Mick Jagger, Farah Fawcett, Johnny Hallyday and Charles Aznavour.

Lorieux's work was acquired by the European House of Photography, and now his famous photos (1970s-1990s) will be displayed in Spain for the first time at the Majestic. Indeed the family-owned luxury hotel has a long-time link to the art world, drawing artists like Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. And there’s a 1,000-piece art collection displayed throughout the property, which includes works by Antoni Tàpies and Josep Guinovart.

The exhibition of Jean-Daniel Lorieux’s photographs will run from October 9 to November 9, 2019. Note that the exhibited work will be available for purchase, with proceeds going to a local charity. Fundació IReS is a non-profit organization that focuses on the social, psychological, and educational care of marginalized people who find themselves in situations of social risk or financial difficulty.
