Josephine Cardin is a fine art photographer who focuses on contemporary figurative work inspired by music, dance, and the human themes of loneliness, isolation, melancholy, love and loss. Cardin works primarily with self-portraiture to illustrate scenes that bewitch, seduce, and explore our human sensibilities.
