Gisele A. Lubsen is a Dutch born photographer and founder of G.A.L PHOTOGRAPHY, a creative photography agency based in Los Angeles, CA. Gisele's photographs have been exhibited and published in France, Greece, Switzerland and the United States.
Specializing in underwater conceptual photography, Gisele has produced riveting iconic images that illustrate the ambiguous zone between life and death. By deconstructing this theme underwater, Gisele is able to humanize her subject, creating an alternate reality within the light and dark, surreal world of the aquatic environment. While considering the subject out of the usual context, the viewer is able to experience human performance, vulnerablity and power along with the fluidity and preciousness of time, becoming truly aware of memento mori.
Photographic exploration of the feminine archetype in mythology, fairytales, storytelling and history have produced the fine art photographic series Undercover Goddesses, Goddesses, Watermark, Struggle and Triumph, Displaced Fairytales and the upcoming Amazons, all of which pay homage to the eternal strength of women in story and in life.
Gisele holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from the American University of Paris with a minor in Photography and Drama as well as a Master's degree in Fine Arts and Photography from Otis School of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA. She is fluent in six languages and has lived in The Netherlands, Greece, Switzerland and France. Gisele currently resides in Santa Monica, CA.
Gisele's book, Watermark, is available through Kapon Publications, Athens.
