Biography

From Toronto, and based in Mexico City, Brett Gundlock is a photographer. His editorial clients include: The New York Times, Der Spiegel, The Washington Post, Report on Business Magazine, Telegraph, VICE, Bloomberg Business Week, Maisonneuve, and The Wall Street Journal.

After three years as a staff photographer at Canada’s National Post, Gundlock set out on his own and now divides his time between assignment work and personal photographic interests. Brett’s personal work brought him to Mexico in 2012 and he has been working there since. Current projects include creating his first book from his current project ‘Flowers for Zapata’. Contrasting current social conflicts in Mexico with the history of Emiliano Zapata, Brett is exploring man’s lust for control.
