Audra Osborne (she/her) is a photographer and crafter living in Portland, Oregon. She makes contemplative work about her life and experiences as a nuerodivergent person. 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 use our space to host female-identifying, nonbinary, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artists, create collaborative opportunities and exhibitions, and continue to exhibit and publish our own collective and individual works.
Audra also owns a small photobooth company called Party Cat! and is the Program Manager for the photography nonprofit, Photolucida. (Yes, she's a very busy person)
