Geloy Concepcion

San Francisco

Geloy Concepcion (b. 1992) is a photographer born and raised in Pandacan, Manila, who has intimately documented his new life as an immigrant living in California since 2017. His pictures tell stories of the underdogs, the unrecognized, and the unheard. His work is often an exploration of the streets, which showed him that change plays a part in wanting to remain. Geloy started out doing editorial cartoons for the school paper, but it was his later discovery of street art, painting murals around the city, which gave him a way to delve deeper into the lives of the people he met along the way. His most notable project, "Things You Wanted To Say But Never Did," gained international recognition. His works have been exhibited in the United States, Europe, Japan, Singapore, India, Australia, Kosovo, Indonesia and the Philippines. Geloy currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with his family.
