Gilles uses his artistic medium to touch on a broad range of contemporary social issues facing our country. Through his photography he has documented and addressed issues related to the AIDS epidemic, homelessness and poverty, as well as the last economic collapse. His newest works, In- fra- structure, will be on display at Artspace1616 through the beginning of May.

"My intention is not to provide the viewer with answers, but for the images to serve as catalyst for questions, investigation and awareness." -Richard Gilles

This is amazing! I like the documentary aspect of his work, I find that so interesting to capture what is really going on in our daily world, rather than manipulating the space to seem beautiful and pleasing.
