Leopoldo Pomés (Barcelona, 1931) is a photographer and a publicist. In the sixties and seventies, he brought his passion for image and light to advertising, a field where he was –and still is– considered a genuine innovator. He won first-place advertising awards at the Venice Biennal and the Cannes Film Festival, and he is the creator of the iconic Freixenet champagne bubbles, as well as the author of photographs that made history. He has been awarded the Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas (1998), the Creu de Sant Jordi given by the Catalan government (1999) and, more recently, the Premio Ramblista de Honor (2015). His literary activity, always linked to photography and gastronomy, includes Teoria i práctica del pa am tomàquet; Leopoldo Pomés: la mirada; Leopoldo Pomés: Flashback and Comer es una Fiesta. He has also written the poetry book Vidre de nit seguit de Polvo de sombras.
