Kelin Long-Gaye is a Brooklyn based documentary photographer and filmmaker who grew up in New Paltz, New York in the 80s and 90s.
Throughout her world travels, the lenses may have changed but what's underneath has always been the same- she is drawn to, intrigued by, and identifies with the outcasts of the world- whether self proclaimed or imposed.
She has filmed and photographed the forgotten people, the rejected, the misplaced, or the misused, in indigenous communities in the mountains of southern Mexico, the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, Senegal West Africa, the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina, the streets of New York City, New Paltz and New Orleans.
She has filmed documentary video in New York and Brazil for humanitarian organizations such as the United Nations Development Fund and she is producer of the soon to be released 20 minute documentary called "freelance nation" about Uber drivers efforts to work around their "non-employee" status and gain basic benefits.
Kelin Long-Gaye is coming full circle with her very first photo exhibit in her home town of New Paltz, where the intrigue and identification with the outcast was born.
