Sabrina Srur (b. Buenos Aires, 1988) is a Montevideo-based photographer with a Bachelor’s Degree in Audiovisual Communication (2010) from ORT Uruguay. She completed several courses and workshops in ECU, Fotoclub, and CdF in Montevideo during her college years, and also attended programs in New York City such as Photography & Digital Video Summer Program (2011) at Parsons, Lens and Screen Arts Summer Residency (2012) at SVA and Creative Practices Program (2020) at ICP, where she was awarded the Arnold Newman Scholarship.
In 2011 she co-founded the shoe fashion brand MUTMA, where she developed as brand director and photographer until 2018. This background in commercial photography influenced the visual language in her work, which investigates kinfolk identity, femininity and motherhood through staged portraits and still lifes, inspired by her family's archive. She is currently developing her project Eggs for which she was selected to participate in MUFF (2020), Montevideo Uruguay Festival de Fotografía. Her work was published in Fotodemic (NYC), Marble Hill Camera Club (NYC), and AUCH (Mvd) among others, and is part of collections such as Hungry Art (MVD), Pieza Art (Amsterdam), and Colección La Compañía del Oriente (Mvd). She recently exhibited at the group shows Global Images for Global Crisis de ICP, Nueva York , Reconstruyendo Identidad at CCE, Montevideo and Herencia en Diálgo de Galería SOA.
