Gilchrist Alo

Hi, my name is Gilchrist Alo. I'm a 22 year-old photographer that is based in Portland, Oregon. I currently attend The Art Institute Of Portland, majoring in Photography and Design. I mainly go to school full-time and occasionally would work as a freelancer during newsworthy events. I have recently become more comfortable with the Street Photography genre. I feel it works hand in hand with my practice of photojournalism. I like being able to tell stories with my photographs, which I'm 100% sure every photographer loves to be able to do that. Through this sort of photography I've learned something about my subjects and myself. My subjects tend to be lonely individuals and in comparison to me, I feel my loneliness is shown through my execution of my own "decisive moment". Photography for me is the best possible output for my voice to be heard. I'm not an eloquent writer or speaker, it just isn't in my bones. I can hope that my photographs would get some recognition and find their place in the world of overloaded information. Please feel free to comment or even follow me on here. Prints will be available soon.
