Rose Marie Cromwell, 24, began taking pictures at age 12 in her hometown Seattle, Washington. At age 18 she moved to Baltimore, Maryland to pursue a bachelorâ€™s degree in photography and a minor in anthropology. While attending the Maryland Institute College of Art, she began to use photography as a means to interact and document selected communities. Upon graduation Cromwell received the Meyer Photography Traveling Fellowship, which is awarded by the Collegeâ€™s photography professors to one graduating senior. With this grant she traveled to Cuba and created a body of work of intimate portraits of Cubans in their homes. This body of work will appear in the book, â€œ25 under 25: Up and Coming American Photographersâ€, to be published by Duke University in collaboration with PowerHouse books in early 2008. Last fall Cromwell embarked to Panama City, Panama as a United States Fulbright Scholar and spent the year working on a project of environmental portraits of people from the Afro-Antillean community which culminated with a show at the Diablo Rosso Gallery in downtown Panama City, with great reception. At present she recently returned from a month in rural Guatemala where, in collaboration with anthropologist, Anne Kramer, she began the photographic and narrative project â€œDreams of Chocolaâ€.
