BIOGRAPHY / BIOGRAFÍA

Cristina Ramos is a fine art and wedding photographer from Spain based in Uppsala, Sweden. 

Was born and raised in Zaragoza, Spain till attending Fine Arts school in University Complutense of Madrid. She spent all her childhood painting and drawing and photography-bug bites her accidentally in her teenage years by coming across some photo-exhibitions. Starting with landscape and portrait photgraphy, learning and developing technical skills, soon felt she needed to take a step further, so she started considering  the camera not just a tool to capture the place or the moment in time, but a tool to capture her imagination. She began re-creating through photography the concepts she was walking around with, and working on in her painting projects, and nowadays, both photographic and painting languages constitute in equal parts her mean of expression.

Cristina nació y creció en Zaragoza, España hasta que comenzó sus estudios de Bellas Artes en el C.e.s.Felipe Segundo de La Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Pasó su infancia pintando y dibujando, y el gusano de la fotografía no le picaría hasta la adolescencia, a través de la visita a algunas exposiciones de fotografía. Empezando con paisaje y retrato, estudiando y desarrollando habilidades técnicas, pronto sentiría la necesidad de dar un paso más allá, y empezaría a tomar la fotografía más que como herramienta de capturar el momento o el lugar, como herramienta para capturar su imaginación. Así pues, comenzó a recrear a través de la fotografía los conceptos e ideas que desarrollaba en sus proyectos de pintura. Hoy en día, fotografía y pintura constituyen sus dos medios de expresión al 50%.


STATEMENT / TEXTO DE ARTISTA

Her work is juxtaposed between fiction and reality. Within a surreal atmosphere and through storytelling creative process, her images play around concepts like human self-strenth and power, the individual and its habitat, and the subconscious human realm composed by fears,desires, tensions and dreams.

Su trabajo se yuxtapone entre ficción y realidad. Envueltos en una atmósfera surrealista e intrigante, y a través del proceso creativo del cuentacuentos, sus imágenes abordan conceptos como el ser humano y sus capacidades, el individuo y su hábitat, y el plano del subconsciente donde anidan nuestros miedos, deseos, conflictos personales y sueños
