Gabriela Waisman Photography Gabriela Waisman

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1976, under the sign of Libra. With certain naturalness, I developed the taste for visual experiences from very little.

I started drawing, sometimes, copying illustrations and performing over them my own creations, and others, letting my hand and imagination fly in their very own ways. Without any doubt, this was an activity that transported me to other dimensions.

When I became a teenager, my parents bought a home video camera to record our vacations for the first time. I couldn’t let it go anymore. Something special started there that was stronger than me: an endless path to significant audiovisual expressions.

I graduated from ORT High school, as a Computer Programming Technician and afterwards I fully submerged in the Design of Image and Sound Degree Career in the University of Buenos Aires, and at the same time, in Integral Direction and Production of Television Career in the CENT Nº 15, Channel 7. Photography was always with me, before, during, and after the degrees.

Having a lot of experience in the audiovisual area, photography was still my place to play, to expand and to experiment from a much more personal aspect. Little by little, it gained ground in my life, until it became the main thing I wanted to do.

I've always worked as a freelancer in photography, film, video, audiovisual services, translations, subtitling, web development, institutional communication and cultural management.

In 2004, I created and directed the first Sexual Diversity International Film Festival in Argentina, called “DIVERSA”. It was the first of this kind and magnitude in Latin America, with a huge national and international impact and success for being such an avant-garde event. It took place during 7 years, establishing new foundations for future generations.

In 2011, I had the honor to be declared Distinguished Personality of Culture, by the Legislature of the City of Buenos Aires.

I also participated as a Jury in the “BERLINALE” International Film Festival of Berlin in 2005 for the Teddy Award, and was also invited by the Goethe-Institut and the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs to be part of an International Program for film Experts, again in the BERLINALE, in 2008. I was also jury in many other film festivals in Argentina and abroad.

I love what I do and I’ve always worked for different organizations, companies, and people. And always, I mean always, I passionately commit myself to the things I love to do.
