About Ivo Rovira Auge
With more than 20 years of photographic work behind, independently and alone, Ivo and Ana meet in 2007 and found 46020studio. In addition to their personal work, their achievements extend to several fields: documentary, advertisement, industry, audiovisual and sports. Established in the city of Barcelona (Spain), we can say that at that moment a nomadic adventure begins, with a camera on their shoulders, as their clients and their personal projects make them travel, more and for longer periods of time, throughout the world.
They work together in multiple projects and collaborations with multinational companies, advertising agencies and NGOs such as Cacao Barry, Alinghi, the Spanish Ministry of Tourism, San Pellegrino, Kronenbourg, Dell, ACS, Pepe Jeans, Bulthaup, Callebaut, ONCE, America's Cup... They photograph, film, write, create the skeleton, the structure and the content of the projects, their own and the external ones. They spend much of their time in personal projects, ideas and travels. They work in long-term projects of their own like "Camera Blind Project". They think that having a camera in your hands makes you more curious, more attentive to what surrounds you, whether to capture it as it is shown to you or to interpret it and "create a lie" in a future picture. We see in their work photographs taken from reality. Others are stored in their memory as ideas for future projects. But everything comes from the reality itself, a subjective reality. Their projects avoid current topics, they usually do not show issues with a short expiry date, it rather seems that their pictures have no age.
