Gérard Staron is a photographer born in 1962.He grows surrounded with the works of his great-uncle Henry Caillet, painter of the beginning of the 20th century, which took very early the bend of the cubism.

 At 30 years, on the occasion of a journey in Mali, he borrows the Polaroid of his father, himself passionate about photography, to be able to leave a photo to the children of the schools of the Dogon country.

At the end of 2013, he works at full time in photography. He participates from 2014 to 2018 in numerous exhibitions and internationals festivals.

Gérard Staron works on the relation to time and space of the photographic medium.
Anchored in the real and confined to the snapshot, photography must break its shackles to
become subjective, to play the illusion.
He is talking about time passing, nostalgia(sea bathing,My life in Haddock), memory
(nightmare, Childhood Dreams), the ephemeral nature of the world (Lost, Obituary Notice,
Snow Globe, Flower Timegram).
He is talking about spaces that no longer exist, or that will exist, or exist that are beyond
reality (Moonless night, Hom(m)es, False Pretence).
