Ivo Rovira Augé (Barcelona 1971) It was in 1994 when the director of the nautical magazine Yate contacted me, seeing an exhibition of my photographs, to propose to photograph an Olympic sailing regatta. Until then, I had never had the chance to see the Barcelona skyline from the sea. It was love at first sight. Perhaps due to my lack of knowledge of sailing and my interest in artistic photography, I began to photograph regattas in a very heterodox way. I was based much more on aesthetic and lighting concepts than sports. Almost without realizing it, I became a nautical photographer starting to work for different leading teams such as Caixa Galicia in IMS and Transpac, photographing all the regattas on the national scene and some international ones, and also collaborating for different magazines such as Yate and Yachting World ... In 2004 the possibility of moving to Valencia arose and after photographing for a few months for ACM the preparations for the celebration of the 32nd America's Cup, I signed with the Swiss team Alinghi, defender of the AC, as an official photographer until the final victory in July After 2007. Having seen the disagreements in the offices for the celebration of the 33rd AC, I decided to change course in my professional life but keeping close contact with the nautical scene. To this day.
