Chicago, IL

As a storyteller you find yourself in different places, in different situations, and with different people constantly.

My stories started innocently enough in Miami where I was born to wonderful Cuban immigrants. I learned my craft at the University of Florida where I earned a degree in journalism and studied photojournalism and videography. I covered music, local issues, and sports for publications like The Gainesville Sun, Reax magazine, and The Fine Print where I was a contributor when it won Best New Publication from Campus Progress.

My time covering music at UF lead me to traveling the country with local Gainesville band Morningbell after I graduated to shoot a documentary that I'm currently editing. 

To learn more about documentary I worked as the Digital Arts and Publishing Intern at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. I assisted in the producetion and marketing of such books as Iraq | Perspectives, Colors of Confinement, In This Timeless Time, and One Place. In addition, I co-edited the festival program for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.  

I currently find myself newly married and searching for more stories in Chicago. If you have a story or adventure shoot me an email at jmoraphoto@gmail.com

Colors of Confinement

Colors of Confinement: Rare Kodachrome Photographs of Japanese American Incarceration in World War II showcases sixty-five stunning images from a rare collection of color images taken by Bill Manbo, an internee at a Japanese American internment camp in the early 1940s. In this audio slideshow, editor Eric L. Muller talks about his impressions of Manbo’s photographs, taken at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming, and some of the history behind the camps. Colors of Confinement has received wide acclaim since its publication in August 2012 by the University of North Carolina Press and CDS Books of the Center for Documentary Studies. Stories have appeared in a number of print and online publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Picture Show, NPR’s photography blog.
