Gabriella (she/they) is a queer documentary photographer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico covering the Caribbean. She focuses on documenting intimate subjects: her father's suicide post-Hurricane María, family relations of the queer community, sex work, and the relationship between sexuality, depression, and the body. Her work is raw, intimate, and personal. They have been published in TIME, Reuters, Bloomberg, The New York Times, CNN, and The Nation, among others.

With under a year of experience, they were awarded Student Photographer of the Year (2017) from the Association of Puerto Rican Photojournalists. Since then, she has participated in various fellowships, research programs, workshops, and exhibitions. In 2019 she was selected to participate in The New York Times Portfolio Review, The New York Times Student Journalism Institute, the Visura.co Mentorship/Residency in New York, the Program of Independent Studies of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Puerto Rico, 20Fotógrafos Atitlán, and the Women Photograph Mentorship Program. In 2020 she became a trained death doula, a Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellow and Grantee, an IWMF Howard G. Buffett Fund for Women Journalists Grantee, and a Women Photograph + Nikon Grantee. Early 2021 they were selected as a finalist in the inaugural NOOR Stanley Greene Fellowship & Legacy Prize.

In 2022 they published their first photo book La gente deprimida tiene sexo sucio y ganas de morir with the independent Colombian publisher Raya Editorial and will be participating in the group exhibition no existe mundo poshuracán: Puerto Rican Art in the Wake of Hurricane Maria opening on November 23, 2022 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, New York.
