Tania Franco Klein (b. 1990) started her photography praxis while gaining her BA Architecture

in Mexico City, which took her to pursue her Master in Photography at the University of the Arts London.

 

Her work is highly influenced by her fascination with social behavior and contemporary practices

such as leisure, consumption, media overstimulation, emotional disconnection, the obsession with eternal youth,

the American dream in the Western world and the psychological sequels they generate in our everyday life.

 

Franco-Klein work has been reviewed and featured by international critique including Aperture Foundation,

The British Journal of Photography, Fisheye Magazine and I-D Magazine (UK), Der Greif,

amongst others. And has been exhibited in London, Budapest, Mexico, Spain, France, Germany, New York,

Vermont, Photo Basel and during the Los Angeles Month of Photography 2017 by Lucie

Foundation. She has obtained the Sony World Photography Awards, The Lensculture Exposure

Awards, The Felix Schoeller Photo Award of Germany Nominee, amongst others.
