Jordana Bermúdez

Jordana Bermúdez is a documentary photographer, photo editor, and aspiring filmmaker based in Brooklyn. 

Her work focuses on identity, specifically as it relates to gender, youth, and immigration. She is particularly proud of her long-term project Girls Can’t Skate, which focuses on an all-female and queer skateboarding community in New York City. Having spent most of her life in México, where gender-based violence and machismo culture are long-standing issues, she wants to amplify women and queer voices.

She graduated from ICP's Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism One-Year Certificate Program and is a recipient of the Director’s Fellowship.

Jordana's love for sports comes from her upbringing in a "fútbol family." Her dad has been in the sports scene since before she was born.
