Born in Brazil, Bella Cardim received her degree in Graphic Design while developing her passion and career in photography. Over the course of her 20-year career, Bella photographed an increasingly expansive set of subjects, including landscapes, architecture, still life, fashion and portraits. In the last 16 years she concentrated on food photography, having her work published in many major publications, displayed at restaurants, design pieces and cookbooks. Currently living in Miami and pursuing her MFA in Visual Arts at MIU/AI, Bella uses photography to conceptually expose how she engages with food. Her artistic research reveals emotional hunger and body image awareness.
