Constanza Hevia H. is a Chilean documentary photographer and filmmaker. She documents visual stories focused on social and cultural issues using an anthropological methodology. In her work, Constanza seeks to explore the complex relationship between memory, loss, and mortality.

 

Constanza began her career in the arts as an Audiovisual Communicator. For 7 years she worked as an Assistant Director in the Chilean film industry. In December of 2017, she obtained a Master of Fine Arts in Photography in San Francisco, California.

 

In addition to her academic training, in 2017 Constanza was selected to attend the Eddie Adams Photography Workshop in New York and in 2018 she was invited to attend Review Santa Fe Photo Festival in New Mexico.

 

Constanza uses photography, audio, and video as tools for social observation and as a language to communicate narratives that usually are not represented in mainstream media and society.

 

Currently, Constanza is based between Chile and San Francisco, CA.
