Josema Zamorano is a Mexican-Canadian artist based in Vancouver.
He worked as telecommunications engineer before making a turn to the arts. The relation between téchne, art and human comprehension of the world is a continuous concern in his work. Driven by the every-day crowds and intensity of Mexico City he started doing street photography while being a student of Latin American poetry at Mexico’s National University. He moved to Vancouver in 2006. With intersecting interests in poetry, existential philosophy and visual arts he earned a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies (2012) from University of British Columbia.
Josema has exhibited at several individual shows including: Un-foldings / Des-pliegues (Rota, Bahía de Cádiz, Spain, 2017); Sandokai: Grasping at Things is Surely Delusion, featured at the 2016 Capture Photography Festival , and Lost Steps at Jamaa El Fna, at Back Gallery Project (Vancouver, 2015). He has also participated in several group shows.
