Virginia Villacisla
Photographer

Virginia Villacisla was born in Burgos (Spain) in 1994. She has a degree in Audiovisual Communication from the University of Burgos. After been graduated she moved to Madrid to specialize in contemporary photography. Thereby, in 2017 she got the MA Photography in EFTI International Center of Photography and Cinema in Madrid.

The tensions generated in her feelings, notions of identity and classic uprooting from the small rural hamlet where she grew up, lead her to develop her project ‘Presencio & The Rural Kids’, which portraits the way in which the youth interacts with the rural spaces inherited from their parents. Presencio & The Rural Kids has been recognized in several photography contests (Seminario de Fotografía y Periodismo de Albarracín, Beca Joana Biarnés…), selected in photography festivals (BFoto, Photoalicante, SCAN Tarragona…), exhibited in different Spanish cities (Burgos, Madrid, Alicante…) and published in magazines such us EXIT or newspapers like El País.

Subsequently Villacisla develops the project ‘Antiálbum Familiar’, also recognized (OnPhoto Soria) and exhibited (Tenerife). This project is intended to be the opposite of a family album. Villacisla seeks to capture the dysfunctional nature of his family environment and embrace it, fleeing from poses and artifice.

Virginia is currently working in new projects that addresses concepts such as territory and identity. In all her projects the author prints her peculiar vision on the environment that surrounds her. Distanced humor, irony and dysfunctionality are the pillars on which her gaze sustains.
