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 Austria
and she attended the BA in Advanced Visual Storytelling at the Danish School of Media and Journalism.
In 2015 her first photo-book “Vegas and She” got published by Fotohof edition, followed by “Land of Black Milk” published by Skinnerboox in 2017.
Stefanie has been selected as a FOAM Talent in 2016.
2017 she has been nominated for the ING Unseen Talent Award and she won the C/O Berlin Talent Award. This resulted in a nomination for the Foam Paul Huf Award in 2018.
Stefanie Moshammer’s work has been published in various print and online publications, including i-D, Collector Daily, It’s Nice That, ZEIT Magazin, M Le magazine du Monde, New York Magazine, VICE, Purple Fashion Magazine, DAZED and many more.
Her work has been exhibited throughout galleries, festivals and fairs in Europe, USA and the UK.

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.

“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

“Powerful colour schemes, cut-off fragments, close-up details and explicitly articulated contrasts characterise the photographic work of Stefanie Moshammer – a signature that is close to the scenography of stage and theatrical light. In her series she links the genre of documentary photography with the concept of fiction. Stefanie Moshammer tells an authentic story of places and people and still creates film-like picture stories.
— Margit Zuckriegl / Curator, Art Historian
