"I need to photograph."
Gabriella Wyke sees her photographic practice as a calling. It is her own personal shout to the world about things that must change.

Gabriella Wyke is an artist who was born and raised in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago where her passion for art was first discovered and developed. Only later in her teenage years was she introduced to photography when she and her family were posted by their military to Toronto, Canada in 2010. There, she took her first photography class and learned a variety of photographic processes that were both film and digital based.
Several years and one more military posting later, Wyke finally made the decision to move to Atlanta, Georgia and pursue a photography degree at Savannah College of Art and Design. At SCAD, Wyke's perspective on art and her photographic practice was completely transformed when she was met with professors and colleagues that challenged her way of thinking and approach to her craft. Today she is a recent graduate of the class of 2020 and continues to make work about social issues in and around her environment.

Season 1 of Click! focuses on student photographers. We will discuss their work, the current state of trying to enter into the industry, and what makes them want to photograph.
