Piece description from the artist
A tobacco farmers day of work in Pinalas, Cuba
Bri Gallo is a Fine Art Photographer as well as a Photo Philanthropist. She currently lives and works in Providence, RI. She believes in the power of Photo Philanthropy to inspire hope and understanding, and to connect people around the world, as well as in our local communities. She visually articulates the mission of non-profit organizations in a compelling manner through Fine Art Photography. She believes in people’s interest in knowing more, in understanding better, in seeing the story, which can then lead to action and involvement.
In 2011, her travels took her to Honduras to work with Shoulder to Shoulder and the town of Guachipilincito. In 2012, she traveled to Cuba, where she captured the stories of the Cuban people and their vibrancy of life. Each experience has inspired her to search for those communities where there is a story to be told.
Bri uses her photography to help people see through a variety of lenses. To open doors to what is surrounding us: both locally and abroad. The emotion she captures in her photography pulls viewers out of their comfort zones, provokes questions, bring smiles to ones face, tears to ones eyes; makes one say, “I never knew”.
