Mioara ChiparusThe Romanian photographer Mioara Chiparus was born in 1976. After completing her studies of International Relations at the University of Washington, she travelled throughout Europe. Her work initially concentrated on the homeland she had left at 16 years of age. To further develop her photographic capacity, Chiparus took part in a one year programme at the Leica Academy in Athens. This was followed by workshops with Thomas Dworzak and Alex Webb, as well as an LFI workshop with Jacob Aue Sobol. Chiparus lives in Athens.
