Born in Dublin, Ireland, Gareth Gooch attended the prestigious Newport College of Art and Design where he studied under British photographer David Hurn, of the Magnum Photos collaborative.

The focus of Gooch’s work in the last few years has been on documenting the disenfranchised sub-cultures of our time: the dynamism of street art and the artists who create it the ongoing LGBTQ political struggle for equal rights and the LGBTQ performing arts community.
