INFO

Working mainly in editorial photography specializing in portraits, Hasbun finds much of her inspiration by simply paying attention to what surrounds her in “the streets, talking to people, and listening to stories on the radio”. These influences are reflected in the subjects she chooses to focus her series on; from the streets in San Francisco, to the modern rodeo, to an editorial story about fat activists in the Bay Area. Hasbun and her camera have captured a little bit of everything. The result? An impressive CV accompanied by a collection of intriguing photos that bring viewers into worlds otherwise unexplored.

One series in particular focuses on the infamous Mission Street of San Francisco. “I chose Mission Street because I am from El Salvador and wanted to learn more about the area’s history”. What all of Hasbun’s projects have in common is a quirky, unembellished honesty. When asked about what she hopes to accomplish through her photography she responded, “I hope to share images that tell stories truthfully and honestly, without embellishments. I love photographing people as they are, doing what they love, showing who they are through my perspective”. It’s this drive for truth in combination with a keen eye and lively spirit that inspires Gabriela and continues to be the foundation for her work. “Inspiration for stories is all around us, you just have to choose a subject matter that inspires you and moves you.” That said, Hasbun’s work serves as a testament to the fact that great photography doesn’t always require great distances, sometimes all you have to do is walk out your front door.
