Jordan Tiberio is a young artist with an old soul. Her work evokes another era full of amazing adventures.
Tell me a bit about yourself!
My name is Jordan Tiberio and I'm a 22 year old photographer based in New York City. I'm a senior at the Fashion Institute of Technology, but no, I don't study fashion design. I have a deep love for everything old, and could probably open a thrift store with all the antiques I own. This quality of mine helps me find the odd in the ordinary, bringing to life the ethereal worlds which exist in my photographs.
How did you get into photography?
Art runs on my mother's side of the family, so I've been surrounded by it since I was a kid. I drew on everything from toilet paper to my parents' furniture (that wasn't as applauded). When high school came along I discovered photography as an art form and found it more practical to study at college than drawing. The rest is history!
What do you have in store for the near future?
The release of a brand new series I've been working on for a few months about my late grandmother. I'm pretty sure it's my first time creating a body of work that's not about love. It focuses on making a portrait of a soul that is no longer physically here, while representing the great divide death creates between those still alive and the ones they've lost. I'm also pretty excited to graduate college in May!
Do you have any dream collaborations?
I'd die to work with Devon Aoki. If I could assist Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari (Toilet Paper Magazine), I'd be a pretty happy girl too!
