Wyatt Gallery, a person not a place, received his BFA in photography at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 1997. In 1998, Wyatt received a Rosenberg grant and traveled the Caribbean photographing Spiritual Sites for nine months. After spending a month in Trinidad, he knew he had to live there and returned months later on a Fulbright Fellowship and spent two years photographing the diverse cultural history of Trinidad seen through its religious places, landscapes, people, and their homes. 

Gallery has received numerous awards such as the PDN 30, PDN Annual, American Photography, and 25 Under 25 Up-and-Coming American Photographers by Duke University. He was a professor at the University of Pennsylvania and has continued to inspire students through lectures at SVA, NYU, and PENN. His work has been published in numerous books and magazines such as Esquire, the New York Times, Departures, Geo Saison, Mother Jones, and Afar to name a few. Wyatt’s photographs have been exhibited throughout the world and are in major private and public collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the George Eastman House, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and American Express, amongst others. 

In 2010, Gallery dedicated his year to photographing in Haiti and raising awareness of the tragic living conditions after the devastating earthquake of January 12th. In January 2011, he published Tent Life: Haiti with Umbrage Editions and it quickly received worldwide press attention, won multiple awards, and sold out of the first edition in three months. The Open Society by George Soros featured Tent Life: Haiti in the Moving Walls 19 Exhibition. Gallery also donated 100% of the royalties to Haitian relief organizations and raised over $40,000USD in total.
