Follow creative Anabel Luna through her favorite places in Barcelona

We asked our artist of the month to talk us through her favorite spots in the city, and neubau eyewear accompanied her on this little tour.

Barcelona based cre­ative Anabel Luna would fit the pho­tog­ra­ph­er label, but it would cer­tain­ly fall short. She main­ly works as a fash­ion pho­tog­ra­ph­er, but she keeps her mind and time busy with many oth­er cre­ative endeav­ours; art direc­tion, inte­ri­or design, act­ing, giv­ing work­shops… She’s lived and devel­oped her style in cities like Lon­don and Berlin, worked with great design­ers and brands, and for a few years already she finds her­self set­tled back in sun­ny Barcelona. We asked her to talk us through her favorite spots in the city, and neubau eye­wear accom­pa­nied her on this lit­tle tour. From muse­ums and hotspots to her love­ly and dreamy home, you can now see it cap­tured through her lens in her del­i­cate and taste­ful way.

MAC­BA

The Muse­um of Con­tem­po­rary Art of Barcelona is ded­i­cat­ed to the works made dur­ing the sec­ond half of the 20th cen­tu­ry. Two years ago I lives in the Raval neigh­bor­hood, one minute away from the muse­um; the archi­tec­ture, the peo­ple, the square, the exhi­bi­tions… It was pure mag­ic to have it all so close to your home. It’s not only just a muse­um: the entrance plaza is a meet­ing point, a pho­to loca­tion, an out­door con­cert hall, even a nat­ur­al solar­i­um! You can meet friends here, buy a beer, and watch the peo­ple who walk by. You can enjoy the sun of Barcelona, and of course the exhibitions!

LOFT­NOU

May I invite you to know my stu­dio-home. Right at the begin­ning of the Poble­nou neigh­bor­hood, we bought aware­house and did a com­plete ren­o­va­tion. All made of nat­ur­al pine wood, inspired by the amaz­ing Scan­di­na­vian style, cre­at­ing not only a work space, but a pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dio, and a sound stu­dio for Ger­ard. It became our house.We lived with Lewis (our cat), and we spent a lot of time in this 200m2 ware­house that we call home now. Loft­nou is more than our stu­dio-home, it’s for many peo­ple; we rent out the loft for shoot­ings, adver­tis­ing, fash­ion, events, work­shops and every­thing needed!

PIKIO TACO

In Feb­ru­ary 2017 we trav­eled to Mex­i­co for one month, and we fell in love with the cul­ture, the peo­ple, but above all with the food! Pikio Taco just opened in the neigh­bor­hood of Gra­cia – a deli­cious taque­ría, real­ly Mex­i­can! They serve the best michela­da in Barcelona, the tasti­est nachos in the whole area and the tacos … deli­cious! The place is super nice, and has a neon sign that says: Me impor­ta un taco”. Love it! Well done guys!

PAR­QUE DE LA CIUDADELA

The park is locat­ed in the neigh­bor­hood of Ciu­tat Vel­la, very close to the beach and the Arc de Tri­omf. It’s a giant park where so many things hap­pen all the time! It’s main­ly events that revive nature, Cata­lan cul­ture and the com­mu­ni­ty. At the same time how­ev­er, dur­ing the week, it is a nat­ur­al space where you can go for awalk, do sports, read, relax, or have a pic­nic. It real­ly feels like you were not in the mid­dle of the city. Watch­ing the sun­set lie on the grass is a very good way to end a long day.

NUOVUM

Nuovum is an object store of inde­pen­dent design­ers, both local and from the rest of the world. Jose found­ed Nuovum in 2013 and has an exquis­ite taste in the selec­tion of prod­ucts. In the dis­trict of Born and also in the Raval, you will find the Nuovum shops, where you’ll find glass­es, bags, jew­el­ry, inte­ri­or décor, and much more! Even if you don’t know what you’re look­ing for, Jose will be inter­est­ed in your taste, your style and what you are look­ing for. It’s like a machine of good taste!
