Jodi Bieber

South African 1966- 

After attending three short courses at the Market Photography Workshop in Johannesburg, Jodi Bieber began her professional career covering the 1994 Democratic Elections in South Africa for The Star newspaper. A turning point in her career was her selection to participate in the World Press Masterclass, in the Netherlands, in 1996. This opened the door to travel the world on assignment for international magazines and NGOs.

Bieber has produced four monographs of her work Between Dogs and Wolves: Growing up with South Africa (1996); Soweto (2010); Real Beauty (2014) and Between Darkness and Light, Selected Works: South Africa 1994–2010 (2017), and has exhibited in solo and group shows locally and abroad. Her photographs are included in some significant collections including the Artur Walther Collection, the François Pinault Collection and the Oppenheimer Collection, and they form part of the holdings at the Johannesburg Art Gallery, Iziko Museums, the Jean Paul Blachere Foundation and the Oliewenhuis Museum.

Bieber has won numerous international awards including the Premier Award at World Press Photo in 2010, and in 2018, on the centenary anniversary of women’s suffrage in the UK, the Royal Photographic Society named Bieber as one of their Hundred Heroines. In 2019, Bieber’s photograph of Bibi Aisha was included by the New York Times, CNN and The Sun (UK) as one of the top 100 photographs that influenced the previous decade.

Bieber mentors students, lectures, and presents photographic workshops all over the world. She continues to pursue her own projects and presently spends most of her time working this way.
