Brenda Bazán is a Mexican-American photographer and environmental scientist based in South Texas.

Her work focuses on Mexican identity, Hispanic culture, border life, and the environment. Her goal is to offer new perspectives around social and environmental justice to include the voices of underrepresented minorities across the Mexican-American border.

Her personal work explores gender and identity 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.  
In 2016, Brenda obtained a B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. In December 2022, she will complete a Masters in Agriculture, Environmental and Sustainability Science from the same university.

As an environmental scientist, her research is focused on hydrology and its impact on communities across the border, which she hopes to incorporate into her visual storytelling and documentation. Currently, she is conducting research and an in-depth evaluation of the Texas coastal watersheds.  

Missouri Photo Workshop '74 alumni.

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