Gabriela Herman hails from Newton, Massachusetts, but has spent her twenty-seven years in a variety of zip codes from France to Mexico to Brazil. She returned last year from five years residing abroad in São Paulo. Growing up with dual American/Brazilian citizenship and Portuguese spoken at home, she decided it was only logical to study abroad in Brazil for a semester in college (Wesleyan University). That semester turned into a year which then turned into five. While living there she had the opportunity to work for several acclaimed photographers. She has been featured in the Humble Arts Foundation Group Show, Projekt 30’s I(pronoun) show, Trucemag, and was nominated this year for a New York Photo Award. She is currently freelancing in New York City.
