Angeles Gonzalez is an Audiovisual Communication professional with more than 20 years of experience working in Television, in the creation and edition of Audiovisuals.

In the world of photography, my training is self-taught, my work has evolved through my own research.

I started doing Documentary Photography, there was a moment when I wanted to investigate further and I went into other registers, like fashion photography and later I evolved to Fine Art.

The experience was very positive, I experimented, and I discovered new ways of capturing, not only moments, but subtle details, I could register forms of expression which I molded it, I could imagine more expressions way and make what I have imagined.

With the singularity to use a traditional technique, my works are a reflection of a gaze in permanent looking for.

Inside the multiple possibilities offered by photography’s art, the one that attracts me the most is the portrait, because of the power it has to transmit sensations and emotions, which reach the viewer directly.

But I go a step further, because I try to get my photography to have a pictorial appearance so real, that when I contemplate it, put into question that what I am watching is photography or painting.

I consider my photography, emotionally dense and infinite; my art emphasizes fantasy and imagination as a source of aesthetic experience

My professional career focuses on the search for beauty and through my photography, I try to share my emotions.

Some of my projects have been based on a study through the painting of the great masters of the Baroque and Renaissance; I analyze the use of light in those wonderful chiaroscuros, to use that knowledge in my photography, where my goal is to achieve that mixture between photography and painting.

In my works, the framings, the treatment of the light, the scenery, the whole, get a mixture, of total pictorial appearance.

 

I also experiment with mixed techniques using various materials, this is how I intervene on canvas, with oil, volumes, gold leaf, etc., getting very original techniques that have nothing to do with conventional photography, which leads me to have a very marked and identifying style of my own.

 

I have published Editorials in different magazines International Thrifty Hunter Magazine, Solis Magazine, House & Garden (section Art), and Vogue.
