Desiree Moore was born in 1986 in the Hoosier state. She began thinking about art, specifically photography, during her 8th grade year in the main cafeteria when she saw it listed as a class available in high school. Immediately she was dismayed, as only juniors and seniors could take the class. She waited 2 years. Her last two years of high school left her hands with a permanent stench of developer and fixative- she loved it. With high acclaims she went to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago immediately after high school. She didn’t like it and left. In 2005, she began pursuit of her B.F.A. with an emphasis in Photography at Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis. She received her M.F.A. in Digital Film and Video from USF in 2013.
