Barcelona should be seen and sensed. This city-by-the-sea is the cosmopolitan home of models, footballers, Spanish aristocracy, the nouveau riche and a huge dollop of fantasy. The city oozes with the atmosphere and attitude befitting the home of some the world's most beautiful people. And there is decadence, lots of decadence. The bars open at ten p.m., the clubs at midnight; the Spanish disco-nap/siesta is vogue The night is live; revelers rule.

The city's ambiance is minimalist and chic, but the pared down style of the denizens is played out on a stage decorated with the wild architectural flourishes of Antoni Gaudí 's wedding cake style and the equally stunning pared-down Cubist style of the Fundació Joan Miró. Looking up at the Gaudí designed ceiling of the Sagrada Familia and looking down on the city from the roof of the Miró are two wildly divergent experiences, but both are Barcelona. Gaudí 's designs prove that with art, anything is possible; there are no lines; the possibilities are infinite. But even with his whirls and curlicues, Gaudí was a quasi-traditionalist. Not so Miró. Miró is whacked beauty. The rules are gone; only shape remains.

Barcelona based photographer Katherin Wermke and her camera are having a love affair with the city. When she first saw Barcelona, she had a "I'm here now, it's me" moment. She became Barcelona, her "eye" telling its story. Like attracts like and Katherin is an integral part of the young vibrant arts and fashion scene. The city has "birthed" a small stable of innovative young fashion designers who blend the exuberance of Gaudí with the surreal vision of Miró and re-interpret it for the world of rock-and-roll. Their designs are fueled by the city's espresso and excess. And like Gaudí and Miró before them, they are Barcelona.
