Mariana Gil is a visual artist and has a master’s degree in Cognitive Semiotics.
She exhibited her work, among other places, at the art exhibition “What a wonderful world” in Nees and at the street-art festival “Galore” in Copenhagen. She got a runner-up place in the photo competition “Habitat Århus” and some of her pictures can be seen at the Department of Brazilian Studies at Aarhus University.
Mariana is a freelance photographer and recently contributed as a photo-journalist to the web-magazine Fine Spind, a magazine about culture in Denmark.
During art school (2007-2012) she had analogue photography classes, but only later on she started working as a photographer. Mariana got her first digital camera in 2013, so she could work on her portfolio. What she didn’t know back then, was that taking pictures would be a goal in itself and that the camera would be her instrument of work for the next couple of years. She often takes pictures of subjects at night, where the artificial city lights plays a main role in the compositions.
