Suzana Stamenovic

Suzana Stamenovic was born in Belgrade, Serbia, and emigrated to Canada in 1991 after the war broke out in the former Yugoslavia. Graduating with a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration, Suzana had a 16-year career as a computer game artist. In 2010, she became a full-time photographer and opened her own studio. As an immigrant, her search for identity, belonging, and self-representation has always been an inspiration for her art. Through portraiture, still life, and street imagery, Suzana’s work reflects a personal journey exploring migration and disconnection. Her work ranges from street photography to studio conceptual work.  Questions of cultural and social belonging are always an integral part of Suzana’s practice. Suzana currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
