Welcome to my homepage,
My name is Mariana Gil, I am a Brazilian photographer and visual artist based in Aarhus. Here are some of my thoughts about our digital culture in general and how we as photographers have the responsibility to create quality work:
“We are involuntarily exposed to a vast number of images every single day, which can be quite overwhelming. Our engagement with them is rather superficial, as one image can be scanned in just a few milliseconds and we can swipe to the next one. Over and over. Our role as photographers is to create images that can go beyond the surface level, images that might slow down this flux and stick out from the noise, because they have something to offer. We need to create a different form of engagement with the content we are sharing and think about the context we are creating to offer a visual experience.”
I hope I can offer you that, enjoy your ride!
