How to break NYC’S pho­tog­ra­phy scene

Ger­ardo Viz­manos

HISKIND - - HEATHER CASSILS - Words Josh Fletcher

Back in 2015, when the idea of HISKIND was first con­ceived, we dis­cov­ered the work of NYC based Ger­ardo Viz­manos. His aes­thetic por­trayed our vi­sion for a brand we were just dream­ing of cre­at­ing and we fol­lowed his work closely. Hav­ing shot for Gaylet­ter, Kal­blut and Van­ity Teen, his work uses vis­ual lan­guage to ad­dress con­cepts sur­round­ing the no­tion of “sub­ject”.

He works with the idea that the sub­ject and its iden­tity have no real ex­is­tence. His work deals with move­ment, bod­ies and shapes, con­trast­ing a sense of seren­ity with the ten­sion of a la­tent sex­u­al­ity that could be present but re­mains hid­den.

Fresh from his lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion Hid­den Se­crets at MOMA, Viz­manos shares some tips on how to con­quer NYC’S com­pet­i­tive pho­tog­ra­phy scene.
