Invernadero de Circo is a photography exhibit by photographer Gaby Merz designed specifically for El Invernadero, a circus school and professional circus training and residency space.

I am a photographer and father of two wonderful children, the reason I became a photographer in the first place. My university education is as a graduate in physical activity and sport sciences. I worked for years as a manager of sports facilities and finally, the birth of my eldest daughter made me change my course. I started as a social photographer, specializing in births as well as other types of events, and once again when my daughter began to train as a circus artist my professional life turned around again. I don’t specialize in photographing artists… just people… people, who live their dream and can’t live without it. I have always been a photographer. I have not always had a camera. You have probably always been an artist. Even before going on stage. Photography is about looking Deep into someone, through one’s eyes, heart and soul. This is what I do.
