Gabriel Garcia Roman

 

Gabriel currently resides and works in New York City. He was born in the high deserts of Zacatecas, Mexico and raised on Chicago's north side. His family immigrated to the states when he was two years old. It wasn't until his mid 20s that  he started "making art". When he discovered photography, his life was changed. 

He returned to school when he was 33 and received his B.A. from The City College of New York where he studied studio art.  As an artist, he has constantly looked for ways to counteract the flatness that’s inherent to the medium of photography: weaving, folding, cutting, interlacing prints or collaging are all different attempts at realizing that goal.
