Jack Bernal is a talented photographer and visual artist based in Barselona, Spain. He shoots a lot of lifestyle, portrait, nature, fine art and conceptual photography. Inspired by the decomposition of movement of Muybridge and Marey it is a small sample of the diary of a street, of a neighborhood, of a Saturday morning.
I remember a long time ago already, that I liked to play retouching, coloring and doing assemblies with photographs, but nothing serious at all … It was years later that I discovered the passion that I have today for photography. Through my ipod and my compact small camera I began to experiment with objects, to do compositions and to be my own model for my first test.
Sometime later it would not be late until I bought my first reflex. From this moment I went a step beyond and decided to go deeper and to study photography.
Thanks the dance and body language, where I come from, it is my interest for the human body and the movement.
I conceive the photography as a tool of expression, creativity and reflection, even slightly magically in occasions, which there reflects elements and emotions of oneself that the person sometimes unknow.
In my learning I have discovered and worked different kinds of photographic genders but I am more interested in the artistic, creative and conceptual photography to be used at the body, the light, the movement, the nature and to create fictions for differents ideas of thinking.
