Tania Franco Klein (born 1990) is a Mexican contemporary artist working with photography, GIF and installation. Franco Klein is best known for her large scale cinematic and vivid photographs, which exist in multilayered fragmented narrative installations.

Her projects examine self in the digital age, considering the insidious nature of technology keeping us on course and the performative stresses that come from living life online, with a constant fixation on self-improvement. In all of her work, Klein shows an interest in ambiguous spaces, characters and time.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo shows. Her solo exhibition Proceed to the Route which compiled pieces from various bodies of work, was shown in her hometown in Mexico City[1], the United States[2] and Europe[3] receiving reviews by CNN[4], Los Angeles Times[5], ARTFORUM[6] amongst others.

Klein's first publication Positive Disintegration (2019)[7] was nominated for the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards.
