Elizabeth Moran (b. 1984) lives and works in San Francisco. She received her BFA in Photography and Imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in New York and her MFA at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Her work is directed by a preoccupation with evidence of unknown or little understood histories. While her projects are primarily image-based, her work has also taken the form of other media such as text, mixed-media, audio, and books.
Moran’s work has been presented both nationally and globally, including Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center in Atlanta, SOMArts in San Francisco, RAC Gallery in New York, Fotofest in Houston, tête in Berlin, and 72 Gallery in Tokyo. Her work has been published in The British Journal of Photography, The New York Times Lens Blog, HotShoe, and Wired, among others.
Moran was awarded a Murphy and Cadogan Fellowship in 2012, a Tierney Fellowship in 2013, and a grant from the Magnum Foundation/Atlantic Philanthropies in 2014. She was named one of the winners of Magenta Foundation's Flash Forward (US) for 2013 and, in 2014, one of Photoboite's 30 Under 30 Women in Photography and the Santa Fe 100.
