Josefina Fernandez Moran

Josefina F Moran is a portrait and fine arts photographer (born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, lives and works Brooklyn, NY). She uses portraiture as a way to discover the identity of the people she photographs. In her work, she explores intimate relationships, as she does in Tati, a series of portraits of her mother. In Adolescent Girls and Portraits and Identity her portraits aim to capture teenage girls at pivotal moments in their lives. Her work has been exhibited in several group and solo exhibitions such as the Latin American Fine Art Competition, Agora Gallery (New York), the Consulate of Argentina (New York), and Umbrella Arts (New York). She was among the selected winners of The Photo Review in 2019 and 2020. She was also one of the recipients of the En Foco Fellowship in 2020.

She taught photography in her native Buenos Aires and worked with photographer Harvey Stein to teach workshops during the celebration of Carnaval in Argentina.

Before becoming a photographer Josefina had a successful career as a makeup artist. She worked with artist Cindy Sherman in her feature film Office Killer as well as with top directors and production companies in Buenos Aires.
