Roberto Goya, 1977, Tenerife. Degree in Dramatic Art. In parallel, he continues with his self-taught formation in the field of photography, that is complemented with several courses and workshops given by artists, curators and editors as Alec Soth, Ricardo Cases, Mariela Sancari, Pablo Helguera, Dora García, Sven Ehmann, Juan Curto, Joan Morey, Xavier Ribas and Gonzalo Golpe.
His work has been exhibited in Tenerife, Madrid, London and Berlin, as well as appearing in various publications.
His photographic work arises of the reflection regarding an object, a concept, a fact or a text with perceptible social signification to the observer. Its decontextualized use or its transposition urges the spectator to review its meaning and importance or social magnitude, pretending to provoke in her/him a sort of discovery that would reveal a new aspect that has remained hidden for him/her.
His photographs tell a story where either the portrayed subjects or Roberto himself perform a theatrical action. On occasion, the author becomes essential in his images, as he turns the subjects in momentary actors and actresses, who reflect on the proposal. On the other hand, the techniques of image sequencing and magnification show a method that brings his work closer to the cinematographic medium, where the focus of attention reveals important but apparently concealed details of the images, in order to present them to the spectator without any doubt.
