Briana Gallo is a Fine Art Photographer as well as a Photo Philanthropist. She currently lives and works in La Jolla, CA. 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. 2013 she worked on a piece for Make It Right. A non-profit in the Lower Nine area of New Orleans focusing on housing for Katrina Victims. Each experience has inspired her to search for those communities where there is a story to be told.
She is currently a member of the NH Arts Association. She has a juried piece in the Photospace Gallery in VT.
Briana 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”.
