El Nuevo Herald veteran photographer Héctor Gabino has died after a battle with cancer. He was 51.
He passed away this past Saturday in Miami.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Gabino worked for the island’s El Mundo newspaper before joining el Nuevo Herald in 1994. That’s where he met his wife, fellow journalist Cynthia Corzo.
“His talent transcended daily events, and he captured the human side of tragedies with images that touched the heart. He always followed his heart. And despite all the changes in digital technology and the new platforms, he knew how to use his talent to modernize while maintaining his passion,” Corzo told el Nuevo Herald.
Gabino is survived by his wife and daughter Gabriella.
Funeral services will be this Thursday, March 2 from 8-11 pm at Memorial Park Funeral Home, 9800 SW 24 St.
