Michelle Gabel is an American photographer who lives in Syracuse, New York. Her long-form documentary photography projects tell complex, contemporary stories that dive into individual lives while addressing relevant social issues.

Her approach is intimate and she sometimes incorporates family photos, drawings, writings, poetry, audio and other formats to share a compelling inner view. A common theme in Michelle’s work is how adversity fuels people’s strength and resilience and their desire to heal in the face of life’s complex and harsh circumstances.

Michelle believes sharing stories that evoke empathy can enrich lives, helping viewers explore and become aware of the unfamiliar, contemplate questions about our society, environment and the world, and take action.

Michelle’s photography has appeared in various publications including The New York Times, National Geographic PROOF, New York Magazine and ESPN. Her work has been exhibited internationally as well as in the United States.
