About the artist:

Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with a wide range of photographic processes. Almudena’s practice uses photographic processes to reflect on issues relating to identity, representation and ideology, such as the role of photography in the construction of national identity, or the link between photographic archives and colonialism. Her work focuses on how photographic processes and technology transform the notions of public, private, individuality, identity, memory, and, in general, the concept of the individual. Almudena’s work touches on how perception affects existence and how photographic processes contribute to organising perception.

Since 2015, Almudena has worked closely with TATE Modern-TATE Exchange, TATE Britain, The Photographers’ Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Whitechapel Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and various universities in the UK. Her work has been featured and exhibited in Europe, notably at The Photographers’ Gallery in London, Cent-Quatre in Paris and Unseen Festival in Amsterdam (September 2018).
