Fernanda Montoro was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. In 2002 she moved to London where she studied filmmaking. During the process of making documentaries Fernanda discovered her passion for photography. Today she lives and works as a photographer between London and Montevideo, using mainly vintage Polaroid cameras. Of her work she writes:
‘I have always been interested in telling stories. One day I discovered the Polaroid sx70 camera and my life changed forever. I realised I had found the perfect means to express myself. The texture, saturation and even imperfections that a Polaroid photo has goes very well with my own personal universe. So well that sometimes I feel they are hazy reflections of images remembered or dreamed’.
