With a camera in hand, roaming the urban landscape of her home cities, Stephanie’s work explores the notion of space, culture, urban identity and architecture. Her projects dig deeper beyond the camera lens and evokes an intimate portrayal of the ever-evolving landscape. Her passion stems from a desire to explore mundane and subtle moments found within the urban landscape that is often overlooked and capturing fragments of life that is slowly fading away. With photography as a point of departure, Stephanie’s portfolio of work continues to push the medium one step further through the collaboration of different practices including illustration, graphic design and, painting. The result not only enriches the visual experience but also gradually reveals the different layers of information.
