Gerald was born in 1990 and is currently living in Toronto, Canada. He is a graduate of Ryerson University with a bachelor of fine arts, majoring in Photography studies. His photographic imagery is compiled of a conceptual and surrealistic nature, addressing eruptions of his unconscious and suppressed memories. His imagery contest and pushes the boundaries of the photographic process, or image processing. Gerald’s works are driven by a painteresque lens, mainly romanticism, confronting sublime notions of mythology, religion, and spirituality. In terms the imagery is a quotation of part era’s: borrowing aspects, concepts, and styles, combining contemporary practices.
