Enric Gener - 27mm
27MM is my personal underwater photography project. Due to my addiction of unexpected feeling before jump into the sea, I devotes myself into improvisations instead of posed or prepared photo shoot, presenting the interaction between people, animals and the sea, as well as the sensations to be under the water with calm, peace and silence.Where are you from?
Menorca, Mediterranean Sea

What's a typical day like for you?
Half day working as a motionographer in my studio and half day in the sea. Always bringing the camera, but I don't use it always.

Live in a small island surrounded for the sea. And having a father passionate for the sea. The sailing, swimming, diving...

The life into and around the sea. Animals and Humans. Their behaviour their lifestyle.
What path did you choose after leaving school?
I move out the island where I was born, and I spend 6 years at the university and working. After that I quit my job and I became freelance and started the current lifestyle. Working remotely and always living close to the sea. Moving around the world always looking for new seas to discover.
What have been the biggest challenges you've had to overcome?
Find a passion and a lifestyle thats fits in your personality. We group up with to many cliches and is a work to erase them and build something new.
What would you most like to change in the world/environment today?
Overfishing and plastic over production

Time, without doubt
Are there any books/documentaries that have guided your thinking?
No really I always I've been a bad reader. As my parents. We didn't have newspaper or many books at home. But one thing was mandatory, every month we had the National Geographic magazine at home. And because we never traveled, that megazine was my window to the world and a door to the imagination.
What brings you the most joy?
Swim or freedive with pelagic sea life.
What legacy do you hope to leave?
Respect and love for the sea
