Born in Johannesburg and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Jianca Lazarus learned to surf at Glen Beach and picked up her first camera at 16. She combined the two at her home breaks and on adventures to Kommetjie and J-Bay – because any surf trip in South Africa is an adventure. South Africa was wild enough, but wanting more, Jianca packed up moved to New York City when she was 17. Fresh out of high school and fresh off the boat, a girl with a funny accent in the big city, Jianca found work in the production side of the Film and Event industry in NYC.

With four group shows and three solo shows under her belt, she now roams the world like a bedouin photographer, dividing her time between New York, Hawaii, and quick trips to El Salvador and wherever else catches her fancy.
