Gabriel Diaz has been involved in photography since childhood. He experienced a renewed enthusiasm and appreciation for photography after some of his photography from travels was used to illustrate books and magazines. After grad school as a mechanical engineer, Gabriel embarked upon a series of trips to far-flung locations, the camera always in hand. This resulted in an ever growing library of slides and negatives documenting cultures and traditions in a sort of artistic anthropology. Today he licenses images for commercial and editorial use and sells fine art prints.
