This weeks inspiration comes from Photographer of the week Anne Gerzat.

My name is Anne Gerzat, I am from Switzerland – the french part – and am 22 years old.
I have always loved photography but this passion was born during my very first linguistic trip, where I met a lot of people from around the world and where I took my first photos.
Speaking about linguistic trips, it was a great start to know that I just love meeting people from around the world and speak with them for hours and discover different personalities and cultures. That’s what I love in photography, we can “freeze” cultures and personalities and I think it is beautiful.
When I was in New York last year, I shot many street portraits of people I thought where beautiful. Each of them had a story, a lot spoke to me for hours and I feel like I should have had a recorder with me. Each of them touched me in a way so I remember quite everything they told me. I could cry of pain, of laugh or humanity just depending on which one I am looking. It was a really great experience for someone as shy as me. (I mean, I was always thinking like a half hour before I was able to ask people to take their photo ! )

I also love seeing the nature and its diverse atmospheres, capturing its lights and creating a whole “story” about it. I would love to be able to do it, but I still have to learn a lot.
I just made my Facebook page which is a good start to share my work – if I can see it as a work because sometimes I could cry of happiness when I am with my camera !
I feel like there isn’t such a feeling than walking around a place you don’t know (or you know, it actually really depends on your mood!) with nothing else than your camera. Sometimes I could just write a love story with my camera and with the feelings of freedom I can feel – mainly when I’m in a country I don’t know, with people I don’t know and with places I’m about to discover. It’s like there is nothing else than my camera – the beauty of “outside” – and me.

I am now thinking about a portrait project – but I’d like to keep it secret for now. I also have a second one in mind but I have to think more about this.

I taught myself photography so that’s why I still have to learn a lot, and I feel like I will never learn enough. But I love that, even tho it’s really frustrating sometimes. It’s an everyday challenge I just love.
