Copyright © Romina Ressia / All rights reserved  


Romina Ressia was born in 1981 in Argentina, in a small town near to Buenos Aires. Her passion about art started at young age but it was not until her late 28, after graduating in Economics, that she decided to dedicate her life to photography. She studied Photography, Fashion Photography, Art Direction and Scenery in different places including the Teatro Colón. Owner of a pictorial style, she has exhibited her work in Milan, Buenos Aires, Edinburgh, Czech Republic and New York. The attempt to grant a fresh air to the classic style is one of the essential characteristics of her work.


Sourcing her inspiration in the painting of the old masters of the 14th to 17th centuries, such as Da Vinci, Raphael, Rembrandt, or Vermeer, Romina Ressia composes her photographs like a painter constructs a painting. Through the precise study of compositions and settings, she appropriates the representational codes of yesteryear. Considering photography as a unique means of expression, the artist raises questions of a social and behavioural nature by combining the past and the present in a surprising and creative way. Her photographic series Renaissance Cubism was awarded at the Prix de la Photographie Paris 2014 in the professional categories Press/Performing Arts, Portraiture, and Fine-Art.
