Gigi started working primarily with film black and white in 2005 while studying theatre writing at Arts College. Born in Havana, she completed the Photography workshop at the Journalism Institute and the Printing and Processing at the silkscreen workshop René Portocarrero. Incorporating color photography to her practice, she went to film school and graduated as DP by the Arts Institute ISA. She has DP 5 feature length documentaries.
Her photographic work centers in two main directions; one related to constructed scenarios, creating new realities by de-contextualizing the human body and quotidian objets, mostly in BW. The other focus is derived from a documentary eye that perceives the human presence in daily, almost banal scenes; their relationships between them and their environment in a subtle way that, combined with her poetic writing, sometimes in Spanish, sometimes in English, a preference for Spanglish.
