Gabriel Jacobs (c.1998) is a fine art photographer born in San Diego now based in Baltimore. His work occupies a wide breadth of styles including street photography, staged sets, documentary work and digital manipulation
He is a devout believer in the power of analog film as a core pillar in the medium of photography and thus almost exclusively shoots Medium and Large format. Photographing on a wide variety of cameras and emulsions he weaves narratives together to convey emotion in a raw visual form.
His photos are on the one hand touchingly beautiful, on the other hand painfully poignant. Again and again, the artist leaves us orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts. By emphasising aesthetics, he tries to focus on the activity of presenting. The character, shape or content of the presented artwork is secondary. The essential things are the momentary and the intention of presenting.
Currently he is attending the Maryland Institute College of the Arts BFA Photo program.
