Rose Marie Cromwell is a photographic and video artist, based in Miami, whose work explores the effects of globalization on human interaction and social politics. She is also interested in the tenuous space between the political and the spiritual.
Cromwell received a BFA degree from Maryland Institute College of Art in Art Photography and Cultural Studies in 2005, and an MFA from Syracuse University in Art Photography in 2013. Cromwell is a recipient of the Fulbright Research Grant, the Lightwork Community Darkroom Residency Fellowship, and a Syracuse University full ride graduate fellowship. She was named one of "25 Under 25 Up and Coming American Photographers" by the Center for Documentary Studies in 2008, one of “15 Photographers to Watch” by the Telegraph in 2014, one of "25 Captivating Photographers" by the FADER magazine in 2016, and "One to Watch" by the British Journal of Photography in 2017. She has had solo exhibitions at the Diablo Rosso gallery and the Antitesis Art Space in Panama City, and participated in the 1st Biennale del Sur in Panama City, and Prizm Art Fair in Miami. Cromwell’s artwork has been published online and in print in a variety of international magazines, including the 2014, 2015, 2016 Vice Photography Issues, Camera Austria, Time Lightbox, ARC Magazine, Musee Magazine, The Oxford American, and The New Yorker.
Her first book, El Libro Supremo de la Suerte, will be published by TIS books in 2018. The dummy for this book was shortlisted for the Mack First Book Prize in 2017. The book has been reviewed in Book Forum, PDN Magazine, Wallpaper, and Spot Magazine.
Cromwell is a co-founder of Cambio Creativo, an alternative arts education initiative based in Panama, and a member of Estudio Nuboso, an arts and science knowledge sharing platform based in Panama. She has taught at the International Center of Photography, Syracuse University, and at the Aperture Foundation.
In addition to having a photographic art practice, for the past three years she has worked fulltime as an editorial and journalistic photographer. Her commissioned work often overlaps thematically with her personal work. She regularly covers cultural, social, and environmental issues in Latin America and the United States.
