Selina Roman was born in Florida in 1978. Trained as a print journalist, Roman ferreted out stories of injustice in marginalized communities such as migrant farm workers and the poor. After working in journalism, Roman spent five years in Miami at an international security and investigations firm where she became privy to the inner workings of the private-sector intelligence community. While in Miami, she immersed herself in the city’s fashion industry where she shot fashion campaigns for a local designer and honed her personal photographic style that mixed elements of fashion and reportage. Roman received her Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of South Florida in 2013. Her work, which questions ideas of perception, power, protection and femininity, is in numerous private collections.

The Contemporaries was formed to build engagement among contemporary art enthusiasts with the Museum of Fine Art’s diverse programming, with a focus on supporting contemporary artists and exhibitions at the MFA and throughout the Tampa Bay area. The educational meets the social at The Contemporaries’ events, and we hope you can join us!
