Fanny Garcia lives in Oakland, CA and works primarily in photography and printmaking. Her photography varies from night landscapes to self-portraits. Garcia pays special attention to how light draws out missed aspects of manufactured space. She is continually refining her craft by experimenting with different techniques and production images to generate unique perspectives.
The printmaking portion of her portfolio is as diverse as the person. Many of her images center around her experiences in the military.
Garcia was born in Los Angeles to El Salvadorian migrants. Much of her work reflects her experience growing up in Los Angeles and her time serving in the United States Army. She joined the Army in 2010 and left in 2013. She uses screen printing methods to depict her experience of how military rations played a vital role in her military experience; she also shares her mental conflicts about her allegiance to her service. Garcia received her BFA in Photography from California College of the Arts, Oakland, CA and is recipient of the 2018-2019 Veteran Residency Program at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA.
