    Joana Cardozo

“Blueprints” gravitates toward the notion that our home is the reflection of ourselves. Instead of conventional photographic portraiture, in this body of work I reveal the personalities of my subjects by depicting the contents of their homes. “Blueprints” do resemble architectural floor plans; however, they are in fact an unusual form of portrait.

Joana P. Cardozo is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in New York City. Her creative practice utilizes photography to produce images that engage her subjects and their home environments in a unique graphic style of portraiture titled Blueprints. Cardozo graduated from the International Center of Photography in 2015. Her work has been exhibited in group shows including Klompching Gallery, Brooklyn; International Center of Photography, New York; Photoville, Brooklyn; Filter Space, Chicago; A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn and Paraty em Foco International Photography Festival, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
