“Finding New Inspiration” – by Gabrielle Morse


My name is Gabrielle Morse, and I am a sophomore documentary film major at Spelman College. I am a photographer and filmmaker.

When I first got to Spelman, I started using my friends as subjects. They were always supportive and fun to work with. Having to say goodbye to my friends so suddenly left me stressed, sad, and frankly, lost as to how I could continue creatively during this uncertain time. I began looking at old work and material to see if it would provoke any sort of inspiration. I often take photos of the sky, and with limited access to any other subject, it became the thing I was focused on. Soon, I had another way to stay connected with the outside, even during this pandemic, and I found the family I have come to love.
