A student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and a Los Angeles native, Gustavo Soriano is a young photographer whose work focuses predominantly on portraiture.

For his series Casual Encounters, Soriano has paired Craiglist causal encounter listings of female taken on their phone, with a portrait of the individual taken by the photographer. The result of these photos side-by-side create two different appearances of the person and perhaps leave the viewer to question their initial impression with the first image.
