Stefanie Moshammer was born in Vienna in November of 1988.
After graduating from Fashion School Vienna, she received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design & Photography at University of Art and Design in Linz/Austria.
Afterwards she attended the BA in Advanced Visual Storytelling at the Danish School of Media and Journalism.
In Spring 2015 her first photo-book “Vegas and She” got published by Fotohof edition, it has been shortlisted
for the Author Book Award from the Festival Rencontres d’Arles.
In 2016 Stefanie has been selected as one of the FOAM Talents.
Stefanie’s work has been published in various print and online publications, including Collector Daily, i-D, GUP Magazine, It’s Nice That,
ZEIT Magazin, M Le magazine du Monde, New York Magazine, FOAM Talent Issue, YET Magazine, VICE, Hunger Magazine, Purple Fashion Magazine and many more.
Her work has been exhibited throughout galleries in Austria, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands and USA.
Stefanie Moshammer’s work springs from her direct experience of the world and explores the relationship of straightforward observation and the poetry of personal impressions.
Her work plays on the the boundaries between documentary and conceptual photography.
“In an image-driven culture, visual content dominates, but our associations and preconceptions of images can inhibit us.
Stefanie Moshammer uses visual story-telling to bring the viewer back to the image, to consider the where, who and why
through pop colours, nebulous subjects and a penchant for off-beat surrealism.
Stefanie’s lens seeks out the little details that can elevate still images into cinematic potential; a miniature American flag,
a red-eyed rabbit, a blood-stained hoodie, each has a story to tell.”
— Max Grobe / Hunger Magazine
“It is the work of a photographer beyond her years, an artist with the ability to capture our shared existence,
the essential insecurities of comparing one’s life to another as we increasingly live in smaller and smaller spaces,
with an eye as sharp and intense as any of her generation.”
– Tom Seymour / Arts Journalist – The Guardian, The British Journal of Photography, BBC Culture, Time Out
