Looking for beauty and poetry in the urban and natural landscapes.
Josiane Dias is a Brazilian photographer. Since 1993, when she left her hometown, Curitiba, she has lived in Brasilia, Geneva, Tokyo, New York and Tel Aviv. Living in so many different cultures has influenced her photography in different levels.
Her work is inspired by the urban and natural landscape but not in a straightforward sense. She looks for the unnoticed and the unexpected detail of these landscapes, for something ephemeral yet permanent.
Her work has been featured in several exhibitions in New York (National Academy Museum, Soho Photo Gallery, Sonia Gechtoff Gallery, etc.) and is included in private collections.
Dias studied at the International Center of Photography, at the National Academy School and at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY.
She has a B.A. in English Literature and a Master in Linguistics at the Université de Genève, Switzerland.
She is married and has two sons.
