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 bachelor’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 College’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, “25 under 25: Up and Coming American Photographers”, 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 “Dreams of Chocola”.
Since beginning her work as a professionaldocumentary photographer, Cromwell has traveled and worked in many different regions of the world, with a range of diverse peoples, including the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean. Her work has been included in various anthropological journals and books, as well as being positively reviewed by international art critics. As well as documentary photography, Cromwell has also worked in commercial and fashion photography, web design, and is currently working well as a master darkroom printer for the renowned Panamanian photographer Sandra Eleta. Cromwell resides in Panama City, Panama.
