About

Greg_Bal_sm.jpg
 
 

Born in India, Greg has a deep respect for other cultures and uses photography as way to humanize and connect people.  Having worked on behalf of indigents as a public defender for most of his life, he now uses photography to address issues of social justice and diversity. 

Greg's photographs have been published in the New York Times as well as magazines including Vogue India, Tehelka, Prism, Caribbean Beat, Griffith Review, Sampsonia Way, and Insider.  His works have been selected for publication in the books "Immigration" by RoHo Press, "LUX Photography Journal - 2017," and "Urban and Human Empathy" by dotART. 

Greg's work has also been exhibited in a number of juried venues including The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado; Urban Photo Awards 2017 in Trieste, Italy; Octagon Center for the Arts in Ames, Iowa; Black Box Gallery in Portland, Oregon; the Strange Fire Collective in Denver, Colorado; Fairbanks Gallery for Art at Oregon State University; and the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon in Des Moines, Iowa.  His portrait of President Barack Obama was selected for the permanent "Presidents" collection at MIT.
