Joseph Jacinto Mora (1876-1947) was an artist, photographer, and author.

Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, he soon moved with his family to the United States, where he spent his childhood in Boston. He studied art and worked in Boston as an artist and illustrator before moving west.

In the years 1904-1906, he lived with Hopi and Navajo Indians, where his photographs recorded a way of life that was soon to vanish from the American southwest. He later lived in Mountain View and Pebble Beach, California, working as an artist and author. His works include sculptures, dioramas, books with pen-and-ink illustrations about cowboy lore, and a series of illustrated maps (he called them "cartes") providing a light-hearted view of selected western cities, parks, and topics.
