Brandy Trigueros is a Los Angeles based artist who uses the narrative space of the camera to meticulously yet playfully create staged inquisitions of womanhood, memoir, and the on-going transformation of self. She received her BFA degree from the California Institute of the Arts after years of working in publishing at the Los Angeles Times and animation at Nickelodeon.

Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in venues such as Building Bridges Art Exchange, The Center for Fine Art Photography, Berlin Foto Biennale, Los Angeles Center of Photography, and New Orleans Photo Alliance. Her photographs have been published in Musée Magazine, Lenscratch, and F-Stop Magazine, among others.

Brandy was selected as a Critical Mass finalist in 2014, 2015, and 2018. She also received honorable mentions in the 2014 and 2015 International Photography Awards and was a finalist for the 7th Julia Margaret Cameron Award.
