Gabriel Isak was born in Huskvarna, Sweden. He uses photography as a metaphor for experiences of the soul by creating photographs that are simple in form, but rich in ideas and emotions. His imagery entails surreal and melancholic scenes inspired by the inner world of dreams and psychology, where he invites the viewer to interact with the internal world of solitary figures that symbolize our own unconscious states. The objective of Isak's art is to reflect human experiences that will allow the spectator to reflect on their own journey. Gabriel received his BFA in Photography from Academy of Art University in 2016 and is currently residing in New York. Read Less
