PRESS   ABOUT 
Gabriel S. Lopez (b. 2002) is an artist residing in his hometown of Echo Park, Los Angeles. His work primarily consists of documenting and storytelling through the lens of portraiture, particularly on himself as well as other queer black and brown individuals.

In 2016, Gabriel attended Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts, an arts high school in Los Angeles where he studied the art of photography and began to build the foundations of his photographic world.

Gabriel uses photography as a medium to express his vulnerability and explore his connection with himself and his community. He pulls inspiration from various lived experiences and his observations of everyday life.

Gabriel’s work has been exhibited at 10 14 Gallery (London, UK) and Tlaloc Studios (Los Angeles, CA). He has recently been selected as a finalist and a special mention for the 2022 Palm* Photo Prize. Select clients include The Cut, New York Magazine, LA Times, W Magazine, and Converse.
