Jacques Léonard (1909-1995) settled down in Barcelona in the early 1950s after falling in love with Rosario, a gypsy model who lived in the slums of Montjuïc. While there, Léonard abandoned his career in film and began working professionaly as a photographer. Francesc Català-Roca provided him with his first contacts, and he contributed to La Vanguardia and Gaceta Ilustrada.
In 2009, what remained of his work entered the Arxiu Fotogràfic de Barcelona. Of the 18.000 negatives comprising this body of work, 3.000 photographs deal with the subjet of gypsies. Members of the community opened the doors of their homes to "Payo Chac", as he will always known in the gypsy community, so that he could take photographs as a kind of notetaker of their daily life.
