Pilar Aymerich

Barcelona, 1943

Pilar Aymerich studied in Barcelona, London and Paris. She specialized in reportage photography and portrait, and began her career in publications such as TriunfoDestinoCambio 16El País and Fotogramas, among others. She also collaborated on books about Catalan women including Mercè Rodoreda and Montserrat Roig. Her first projects coincided with the events that occurred during the transition to democracy in Spain and she managed to capture the key moments. Pilar’s approach also succeeds in encapsulating her subjects, in a natural yet detailed way, when she takes portraits, be they of people demonstrating in the street or cultural figures who are posing for her. Pilar Aymerich’s work becomes – both in the scene and action at a crucial moment and in the placidity of the surroundings that frame the portrait – a testament to those people who took to the streets demanding the rights that had been denied to them during forty years of Franco’s dictatorship, and shows the determination of civic society to reclaim its freedom and progress through collective action. She has held several positions at the journalists’ association, Col·legi de Periodistes, and in 2005 she was awarded the Creu de Sant Jordi.
