GABRIELLE MOTOLA

VERSATILE PORTRAIT, TRAVEL AND MUSIC PHOTOGRAPHER

Photographer focusing on long-term projects which examine a social element or issue. Gabrielle also guest lectures internationally on photography and film, having studied psychology, film and photography at the University of Miami and the Spéos Institute in Paris.

As a London-based, American born British National, Gabrielle says that she completely agrees with the Englishman who once said that the USA and the UK are two nations divided by a common language. Perhaps this is why she states that the main focus of her creative expression is through the lens of still photography. She has a background in film and was an editor and colourist for 10 years. Gabrielle also designed and taught the first ‘DSLR Video for the Photographer’ at the International Centre of Photography.

Her specialism is, however, in photographing people – whether they are aware of her lens or not. Her work, she says, is about creating visual inspiration by translating emotion and thought into imagery.
