Xenia and Jean, “two-mad-about-books” people decided to open a space dedicated to photography in Barcelona, and Mecànic is the result of it.
This place is an old car-repair garage, divided in 3 different parts : an exhibition space, a photobook store and a café. It’s the only place in Barcelona, where you can get a drink, listen to Velvet Underground vinyl, and travel far far away, through a photobook or an exhibit.
Yes, people still like photobooks. Yes, people still shoot in analogic. Yes, people still listen to vinyls. For all those people there is Mecànic.
