Stephanie Foden is a documentary photographer based in Salvador, Brazil and Toronto, Canada. With humans and their emotional connections to places as her main scope, Stephanie’s work concocts travel and photojournalism with a deep, delicate sense of intimacy and mystery, however paradoxical it might sound. Stephanie’s photographs have been exhibited at galleries and museums across the globe, among which are the Birmingham Museum and the Wolverhampton Art Gallery in the UK and the National Arts Centre in Canada. In 2016, Stephanie won the Emerging Photographer Award at RMG Exposed, which earned her a solo exhibition at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery. In 2017, she was selected by Photo Boite as one of their 30 Under 30 women photographers. That same year, her portrait of a Native American family taken on commission for The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s initiative, The Development Set, won the American Experience category in the 14th annual Smithsonian Magazine photo contest.
