Amarah Hernandez (1992) was born and raised in the sweltering desert of Indio, California. She received her B.A. from San Francisco State University for Photojournalism with a concentration in Race and Resistance Studies.
She is driven by a desire to understand and connect with those from different cultures, ideologies and socioeconomic backgrounds. She is fascinated by the notion that photography depicts "reality," a viewpoint that constantly alters based on cultural, social and contextual measurements. Exploring what it means to be human, and attempting to transmit this experience into an imperfect visual representation is the purpose of her work. Using multiple artistic forms, she hopes to reveal still moments in a world thats always in motion.
