Adam Fuss at the Fundación Mapfre

Beautiful. That is one word to describe the photographs by London born Adam Fuss which are currently on display at the Fundación Mapfre. Fuss is not like any other photographer; in fact he does not even use a normal camera to take his photographs, prefering to use old style techniques with chemicals as used by Fox Talbot and Daguerre. His images are truely fascinating and it's certainly a photography exhibition not like any other. Here is a video about the exhibition, which includes an interview with Fuss in English:

The exhibtion is on until 17th April at the Fundación Mapfre, Paseo de Recoletos (about a ten minute walk up from the Prado Museum). Metro: Colón (L4) or Banco de España (L2). Free entry. Audioguides for the exhibtion are available in English.  Here's a link to the exhibition, where you can see a selection of his images
