Jodi Bieber’s professional career began covering the 1994 Democratic Elections in South Africa for The Star Newspaper after attending three short courses at The Market Photography Workshop in Johannesburg. A turning point was being selected to participate in the World Press Masterclass held in Holland in 1996. This opened the door to travel the world on assignment for international magazines and NGO’s. She has won numerous international awards including the Premier Award at World Press Photo in 2010. She continued during this time to create her own projects and presently spends most of her time working this way. Her three monographs Between Dogs and Wolves – Growing up with South Africa, 1996; Soweto, 2010 and Real Beauty 2014 and her other projects are exhibited in solo and group shows locally and abroad. She also mentors students to produce projects, and she gives lectures and photographic workshops all over the world.
