Audra Osborne is a photographer and crafter living in Portland, Oregon. She makes contemplative work about her own struggles with anxiety, depression, and the human condition. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2011 with a BFA in photography and has been living in and loving Portland ever since.
In early 2021, she opened a small gallery and project space called Strange Paradise with her photography collective, Small Talk. Small Talk Collective is a group of four female photographers interested in exploring the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller. In practical terms, we pool resources, provide support and exchange ideas - we engage in the best kind of small talk, that which binds us together, fostering stronger work and facilitating collaboration. Looking forward, we will explore showing and publishing our work together while individually continuing on our personal projects.
