Brenda Bazán is a Mexican-American photographer and environmental scientist. Her personal work explores gender and identity related themes in relation to her Mexican heritage and her personal experience as a Mexican-American living on the border between Texas and Mexico. She also covers social and natural environmental issues, particularly around the Mexican-American border.  Through her work, Brenda hopes to offer new perspectives around social and environmental justice to include the voices of underrepresented minorities across the Mexican-American border.

Based in South Texas, Brenda is a trained photographer completing a Masters in Environmental Science at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, where she also obtained a B.S. in the same field. As an environmental scientist, her research is focused on hydrology, a topic she hopes to incorporate into her visual storytelling and documentation.

In the fall of 2022, she will be participating in the Missouri Photo Workshop. 

Her work has been exhibited internationally, and published on The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Texas Monthly and Texas Tribune.
