Born in Romania and raised in NYC, Nona Catusanu-Popp is a cinematographer, visual artist and director. She graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Film and TV and went on to study in the Cinematography Master’s Program at The Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) in the Czech Republic.
An ardent traveler for both work and pleasure, she just recently returned from a month-long shoot in the coldest city in Siberia documenting Russian punk. Given the state of the world right now, she's self isolating (as you all should!) and hopes you enjoy her photography from places near and far.
She is a member of Illium Pictures, an independent production company based out of Brooklyn, NY and The Hexagon Initiative collective, a community of artists based in NYC, and currently serves as the VP of Membership and Board Treasurer for the NYC Women Filmmakers group.
