Photographer | Film Maker

Paulina Avila is a lens-based artists born and raised in Mexico City, currently based in New York City. Due to graduate from Parsons School of Design in the class of 24' with a BFA in Photography and a minor in Film Production. 

Paulina's photographic work is mostly composed of fine art photography, portraiture, fashion and beauty, documentary and event photography. Her work seeks to connect personal stories of my family and community to a wider collective context. Feelings of nostalgia, the sense of home, migration and belonging, and dreams are often explored within her work.

Alongside her photographic work Paulina also uses the moving image to explore similar subjects of interest as her fine art photography. This has led her to create experimental video works, as well as writting, directing and being a cinematographer in several narrative works, constantly drawing inspiration from her home country's myths and legends.
