I’ve lost the connection I’ve had with the town where I have spent all of my life. So much change has happened and is happening in my hometown of Everett, MA. The personal cost for me of almost running from this town in pursuit of growing as a person was losing a sense of the place I grew up in. So I returned and found myself chasing memories of what the town used to mean to me and after all this time, trying to forge a new connection.
Photographer Gabriel Garay is currently based in Everett, MA. From a young age he had a passionate love of art as a whole. He spent time traveling in South America and Europe which led to an adventurous spark in him that led him to start taking photographs. Garay always has a camera in hand – often a vintage film camera. He continued his education at the New England School of Photography and The Griffin Museum of Photography. Gabriel’s work has been exhibited locally in Massachusetts and the walls of the New England School of Photography.
