Su Cassiano is a self taught artist born in Paris. After completing her studies she started to travel and learn photography. She works slowly, in the long form of documentary story telling, and her work is characterized by the intimate relationship with the people she portrays, straddling an often blurred line between personal diary and documentary. It questions notions of identity, representation, gender and power dynamics in society’s fringes, bringing visibility to less represented communities. She’s based between Paris and Sydney.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, including in London (Palm Photo Prize, House of Vans, 2018), Melbourne, Perth ( PCP Iris Award, 2017), Tokyo (Slideluck, 2016) and Istanbul (Documentary Days, 2016). In 2017 she was selected as the winner of the Iris Award at the Perth Center for Photography.
