Toni Toscano is a fine art photographer living and working in San Francisco, California.
She learned about the mechanics of a manual camera at twelve years old while at her first sleep away camp. Since that summer she has been drawn to the medium but started to dedicate her time to it as a serious artistic practice after moving to Austin in 2016.
In Austin she found her way to the Austin School of Photography, reigniting her love for the medium. Since then she has shown her work in local Austin galleries, local art events, and has participated in the East Austin Studio Tour for consecutive years. Her exhibitions have been featured in Glasstire and Almost Real Things.
At the end of 2021 she relocated back to her home state and now resides in San Francisco's Mission district.
