About Wyatt Gallery

Photographer Wyatt Gallery works in the U.S. and Caribbean, capturing images that feature underrepresented populations affected by natural disasters. While Gallery follows in the tradition of the iconic American documentary photographers Dorothea Lange and Mary Ellen Mark, he extends the genre by often abstracting his images, taking an almost painterly approach to his subjects. Gallery has been widely recognized for his activism, and his work has been shown at major institutions like the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and featured in mainstream publications like the New York Times.

American, b. 1976
