Gloria Salgado Gispert
Gloria is a Catalan / Australian artist mostly committed to long personal photography projects both at home or wondering the streets wherever she is. She has her family, her job and her photography falls somewhere in between. She doesn’t normally plan her photography ahead of time, it comes with the flow. Originally from Barcelona, she has spent the last 7 years living and photographing in Perth and recently moved with her family to Nice, France.
With a background in Marine Sciences and Geology, Gloria loves to go out and take pictures in this world. Life is too short; this is something she learned at an early age when she lost her father after a long illness. This has influenced her way of seeing life. “In photography, you materialize who you are. I just try to enjoy every minute”.
An observer ever since she can remember, Gloria’s childhood memories are always present in her work. At the age of seventeen she was given her first camera, the same camera her mother had used to document her childhood and create family albums. “My childhood memories are like photographic frames, everything that I am able to remember starts in a tiny photo”.
Gloria was one of the recipients of the Lensculture Critics’s choice in 2020 and of Stories in 2021. She has also had work selected for the International Documentary Family awards.
