Cristina Ramos Photography

STATEMENT

I develop my concepts through storytelling. Fascinated by the duality of human nature–our tendency to individuality whilst remaining innately similar–my images move between fiction and reality, constructing imaginative narratives in which the aim is to explore the universal language of dreams. 

Playing at the edges of reality,  I present these surreal scenarios often frozen in the moment just prior to or immediately following an unknown action or activity, like an unfinished sentence. With this sense of ambiguity I invite the viewer to look closer. Believing the camera to be not merely a tool limited to capturing reality, I see photography as a way to move closer to the inner self. In my work, photography’s ability to materialise imagination is harnessed as a type of healing therapy, revealing us to ourselves and encouraging the use of emotional experiences to uncover inspiration in our own lives. In my opinion art is a mirror for the creator and the observer. 

Work process implies in first place a clear understanding of the story of the piece to determine the  lighting, composition, color and atmosphere. Once this planned and often sketch on paper,  is followed by the location scouting, then the shooting and finally, the postproduction. The technical goal is to create these surreal scenarios in a realist way. For that, light and perspective are key elements to keep the image cohesive. For this reason, I usually avoid stock photography. I photograph my own material to control the seamless integration of the final piece.
