Bio/CV
Zora J Murff is an MFA student in Studio Art at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Zora attended the University of Iowa where he studied Photography and holds a BS in Psychology from Iowa State University. Combining his education in human services and art, Zora's photography focuses on the experiences of youth in the juvenile justice system and the role of images in the correctional system; specifically how images are used to define individuals who are deemed criminals, and what happens when these definitions are abandoned or skewed. His work has been exhibited nationally, internationally, and featured online including The British Journal of Photography and Wired Magazine's Raw File. His work has also been published in VICE Magazine, GOOD Magazine, and PDN's Emerging Photographer Magazine. Zora was named a Joy of Giving Something Fellow through Imagining America in 2016, was selected as a LensCulture 2015 Top 50 Emerging Talent, and was a 2014 Photolucida Critical Mass finalist. A portfolio of his work is included in the Midwest Photographers Project through the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. Zora published his first monograph, Corrections, through
Aint-Bad Editions in the Winter of 2015. You can order a copy here.

Zora is a co-curator of Strange Fire Collective with Jess T. Dugan,
