Schmoo is an independent photographer and visual artist from the USA who earned her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science in Biotechnology at Johns Hopkins University before she began photographing human stories. Her photo essays focus on themes of identity, belonging, and gender, and are designed to give underrepresented cultures and people a voice.
Over the last 10 years she has also partnered with local and national non-profit organisations to support their missions of cultural preservation and education. Her images have recently been published on BBC News, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Roads & Kingdoms.
In 2016 she has been exclusively pursuing visual narratives and is a founding member of GWS, Berlin's collective for female photographers. Her current focus is PRISMS, a collaborative project about identity, migration, and belonging.
