Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Josephine Cardin is a fine arts photographer who
grew up in South Florida, and is now living and working in Rochester, NY.
Presently, Cardin has been developing her contemporary figurative work, inspired by music,
dance, and the human themes of loneliness, isolation, fear, and transformation. Cardin works
primarily in self-portraiture to illustrate scenes that bewitch and explore our human sensibilities
through abstract stories with a visual dialogue between the subject and the artist created through
harmonic gestures and magnetic artistry.
Cardin's work has been published in Hi-Fructose, InPrint, Digital Camera, Photo+, BLUR,
Elegant, Adore Chroma, The Spoiler’s Hand, Lucy’s, beau BU, F-Stop, Dark Beauty, and Dance
Magazines; Playbill, and the book Meet The Dancers. She has exhibited with the Menier Gallery
in London, ArtMeet Gallery in Milan, Spectrum Gallery in Rochester, NY, The Professional
Woman Photographers, and The Boca Raton Museum of Art Juried Exhibition. Most recently
Cardin was honored with a first place award by the Prix de La Photographie (PX3) for Between
Lock and Key; two Honorable Mentions from the International Photography Awards (ipa); has
