Born (1958) and raised in Switzerland (Zurich and Geneva). Master of Laws in Geneva. Since 1991, Gerald lives between Lisbon, Portugal and Switzerland.
In 2004, he came back to his first passion (and field study), i.e., photography and mainly works in street subjects and documentary projects. Published in various newspapers and magazines (Washington Post, The Observer, SFGate.com, Ethno Traveler, Mountain Record…), he is trying to witness, through his photographic projects, the current violent social disruption in southern Europe, combined with a more impressionistic approach in his “street” or “social landscape” vision. He was deeply influenced by the French photographic humanist school and the American street photographers.
He strongly believes that photography still is a powerful medium to describe and help to understand our world, and as such it should constantly cross the artificial borders between art, documentary and journalism.
