I’m driven by a curiosity to explore light and perception. The morning glisten after a rainy night, the glow emanating from my children's eyes; everything I see is from one perspective, my perspective. I am a first generation Cuban American. Growing up with my family gave me a unique start with specific thoughts on culture, society, and point of view. Art has always been a big part of my life and has always inspired me through difficult times. I find solace in creating and living. A curiosity of surroundings and existence has always sparked the direction. Placing myself at the heart of life’s experience has always been the most rewarding; from traveling to where few have gone, to running marathons, to the homebirths of my children. Our world has a lot of experience to offer us. I always try to stay open to the challenges that will expand my knowledge and training. Starting out with oil painting at a young age, then exploring many mediums in college, I have found the camera to be my primary love for the past 15 years. I shoot most still-life projects with a digital 4x5. Scientific studies, discoveries, and technological advancements usually fill my thoughts. Our human existence is comprised of many elements; geological, architectural, ecological, magnetic, gravitational, historical, familial, and social. I find meaning in my life through sifting and exploring these elements of experience, emotion, and development. I love to work with reflections, refractions, patterns and fractals, all the pieces of physical life that organize our visual existence.
Gisel Florez Studio is dedicated to maintaining a creative edge while shooting high-end still, 360 and motion projects for advertising, editorial, and independent labels. Gisel Florez, uses the medium of photography and film to explore notions of the sublime, transformation and universal questions about the nature of the human condition. Merging her interests in scientific development, interactions of light and the organic process, boundaries between the physical body and infinite time of the cosmos, are the subject Florez incorporates to explore the ways in which we above all, are interconnected within the space of existence.
Gisel is available to shoot throughout NYC or at her studio in Williamsburg.
