Gabriella Parsons is a documentary photographer and journalist born-and-raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. She is a senior journalism major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she concentrates in photo/video production, women and gender studies, English and Spanish. In her work, Gabriella combines the ethical integrity of a journalist with the stylistic flare of an artist, focusing on topics from the environment to mental health to unsolved crime scenes to liberation movements.

The summer before she graduates college, Gabriella is excited to join the PBT team as a production intern to better understand this place she calls home and all the stories that make it unique.
