“Real world always changes what you have predefined.”

Gerard Boyer (born 1974) is a contemporary photographer from Tarragona, Spain.

He says: “I really didn’t know how I landed in this amazing world, we expect sometimes that our lives go straight to a calm path, but sometimes a particular event make you turn left or right. So one day I found myself studying photography.

Photo is my way of understanding everything happens around me, it deserves the freedom that everyday life couldn’t reach.”

Gerard Boyer, why did you become a photographer? And what does photography mean to you?

I really didn’t know how I landed in this amazing world, we expect sometimes that our lives go straight to a calm path, but sometimes a particular event make you turn left or right. So one day I found myself studying photography.

Photo is my way of understanding everything happens around me, it deserves the freedom that everyday life couldn’t reach.

How would you describe your photographic language and creative process? How do you plan and execute a project? Both technically and conceptually?

I need to take it slow, I set up my equipment, basically analogic cameras, breathe and go outside, that’s all, I sometimes have an idea, but I quickly change it, real world always changes what you have predefined. Sometimes impulsive, sometimes planned.

Then I love the promise of a magic image appears in the darkroom. It refers to feelings.
