Gosbinda Vizarretea

Gosbinda Vizarretea is a photographer. She was born and raised in Mexico City, where she lived for 18 years before moving to New York City in 2011 to study Communication Design at Parsons The New School for Design. The program focused heavily on graphic design and photography.

 

Gosbinda communicates through her work the folklore, identity, and playfulness of Mexican society. Her work can be understood in two different groups: documentary and fashion photography. For the documentary pieces she focuses on the glorification of the everyday life. Mexico City and Acapulco are recurrent locations in her work since she spent most of her time in these places.

 

Through her Fashion photography, the medium has allowed her to build, execute, and present new realities just as she imagines them. Women tend to be her main subjects and the idea is to empower them by reflecting their intrinsic beauty and sensuality, while trying to find the perfect equilibrium between body and soul.
