Photographic cameras were always present in the life of Gigi Kassis, who believes that the power of an image is an essential component in all spheres of her work. Graduated in Fashion Design at the Instituto Europeu di Design (IED) and in Graphic Design at the Miami Ad School, Gigi began her career in great style: winning 1st place in the international contest My Own Show with a collection inspired on the movements of "Le Parkour". At the time, Gigi was awarded with the opportunity to show her collection along with the label Valentino, in a fashion show coordinated by Vogue Italy's Editor, Franca Sozzani. ∞ Once she discovered her passion for photography, Gigi dedicated herself to taking pictures of landscapes and people, including herself. An admirer of surrealist art, Gigi generates imaginary scenes before even taking her shots. In 2011, she went to Los Angeles to take part in a workshop on levitation by Brooke Shaden, a respected professional who is an essential reference in Gigi's works. ∞ The unconventional aspect of the photographs created by Gigi Kassis drew the attention of various people; the reason for which she was sought out to participate in several expositions. Among them, are ACESC's XIII Cultural Marathon (XIII Maratona Cultural) and InnerMulti Art, both in 2011. Gigi's inspirations are diverse and arise from her everyday life: small talks, landscapes, music and even the buzzing routine in the metropolis of Sao Paulo bring about reflections that Gigi materializes in photographs which impress by their creativity. __ Câmeras fotográficas sempre fizeram parte da vida de Gigi Kassis, que acredita na força da imagem como palavra-chave em todas as vertentes de seu trabalho. Formada em Moda pelo Instituto Europeo di Design (IED) e Design Gráfico pela Miami Ad School, começou sua carreira em grande estilo, vencendo o concurso internacional My Own Show com uma coleção inspirada nos movimentos do “Le Parkour”. Na época, foi premiada com a oportunidade de desfilar com a grife Valentino, sob coordenação da diretora da Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani. ∞ Ao descobrir sua paixão pela fotografia, começou a se dedicar a retratar paisagens e pessoas, inclusive a si mesma. Admiradora da arte surrealista, Gigi gosta de montar cenas imaginárias antes de produzir seus cliques. Em 2011, foi até Los Angeles para participar de um workshop sobre levitação com Brooke Shaden, profissional das mais respeitadas e que é referência essencial em seu trabalho. ∞ O aspecto inusitado das imagens criadas por Gigi Kassis passou a chamar a atenção de muita gente, razão pela qual começou a ser convidada a participar de exposições, entre elas a XIII Maratona Cultural da ACESC e na InnerMulti Art, ambas em 2011. Suas inspirações são diversas e vem do seu cotidiano: pequenas conversas, paisagens, músicas e mesmo a rotina frenética na metrópole paulistana trazem reflexões que Gigi materializa em fotografias que impressionam pela criatividade.
