Gabriela and Mark are artists who collaborate on long-term, intimate projects using a signature, experimental style that eschews visual conventions and universalizes their subject matter. Their practice, which includes photography, video, writing, music and installation, focuses on socially conscious topics, including the environment, diversity, memory, and borderlands. Their commitment is fed by a passion to encourage meaningful changes in policy. The duo both received an MFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art. They have been awarded three Fulbright grants focused on environmental issues, including one in Ukraine and two in Siberia. They have received numerous other awards, and their work has been exhibited in the US, Canada, Russia, Ukraine, Slovakia, Finland and Korea. Their work has also been published by The Daily Beast, Politico.eu, Smithsonian Magazine; National Geographic, ORF (Austrian television), Getty Images, Narratively and others.

Hand-cut collage artist Inas Al-soqi
Inas the past 15 years, has focused on a body of hand-cut collages and woodcut prints exploring history as it relates to identity, oral history, and ironic interpretation of class and nobility. The pieces speak directly to the vintage paper, visited exhibitions, and social interactions encountered in travels. The visually intriguing artworks criticize and question how we look at imagery through the lens of storytelling immersed in conversation about identity.
