Venessa Monokian
The official photographer of Shedding the Shadows, Monokian is classically trained as a photographer, and is also a new media artist. Her work is motivated by a quest to understand how we learn and how we are taught, stemming from a realization that these two do not always coincide in real life. Monokian has shown extensively in the last few years, holds an MFA in Visual Arts from Florida International University, and is an Artist-in-Residence at ArtCenter South Florida.
