Presentación del libro Ánimas

Hello! We will be hosting a cocktail for Gustavo Garcia (photographer) this Friday July 12th with Casa Dragones

18:00-20:00 hrs at Correo 30, Centro SMA
Would love to see you there!

Gustavo García-Villa
Born in La Paz, Baja California Sur, northern Mexico in 1981.
He graduated with honors from the University of Guadalajara with a degree in Graphic Design.

One of the most restless creative minds in Mexico. Gustavo does costume design as well as art direction, fashion styling, illustration, and photography. This last era he began to develop after assuming the position as Creative Director of the Mexican subsidiary of L’Officiel magazine from it’s launch 10 years ago and concluding in 2020 when he began to work on publishing a photobook in Buenos Aires which was included in several group exhibitions.

In 2018 he published a large-format fanzine dedicated to the exploration of the male body, from the intimacy of instant photographs. In this work he brings together 24 images selected from a few hundred shots that he has captured over the course of more than twelve years. This project  was presented with an exhibition in Mexico City, to inaugurate the AGO Projects design gallery.

García-Villa has published a couple of calendars, understanding them as a vehicle for printing photography rather than as an object of use, turning them into collectible items.

He has also collaborated with different brands like Jil Sander, Zara, Calvin Klein, Ulla Johnson, Levis, Apple, Mark Cross, In Fiore, etc. and magazines like Vogue, Elle and Carnal from his creative services bureau  GG STUDIO LTD, @gustavogarciavilla.
He also has a clothing brand created from recycled materials called SUNK, whose Instagram account is fed with discarded photos from his own iPhone, @feelingsunk.

His new photobook ÁNIMAS, which reviews the creation of masks from materials found around Oaxaca, in two different locations -where he has documented the pieces through his photography, was presented together with the photographic exhibition itself in the city of Brussels and, in parallel, in New York City last June 2024.

Now ÁNIMAS will be launched and signed in Mexico this Friday July 12th 2024 in Albergue Transitorio by Julia y Renata at Hotel Casa de los Olivos.
