Moses Omeogo (*1997) is a german-nigerian photographer living in Hamburg. He has worked as an editor and photographer for the Süddeutsche Zeitung and graduated at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences in 2021. Most of his projects are documentary in nature. However, he does not shy away from exploring other mediums, such as collage and wants to explore different avenues which can enhance his next projects.
Moses is researching how artistic practices can create a dialogue between science and society. Pandoras algorithm was his first approach on the matter. He wrote an essay about how methods of science can be part of the artistic practice, which will be published in 2022.
His newest project reflects about the african-german experience and brings together various individuals and their experiences.
Moses is part of the masterclass at Ostkreuzschule Berlin and has been appointed as a jury member for the German Youth Photography Award from 2022 - 2024.
