AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS | Photography
Graduated Bachelor of History from the University of Havana in 2019, Renata simultaneously studied photography at the School of Creative Photography of Havana. While still studying in 2016, she enrolled the National Geographic Photo Camp that took place in November of that year, as part of the cultural exchanges that were maintained during the so-called ‘‘Cuban thaw’’ (normalization of the relations between Cuba and the United States), started by the Obama administration. Renata has participated in four group exhibitions and threw her first solo exhibition, ‘‘Unusual people’’ in April 2019.
Renata’s work is a projection of her experiences and personal battles. She uses her art as a way of self-understanding and with the ultimate purpose of educating and give representation to the issues she has faced.
‘‘Renata Crespo captures with her lens everyday impressions of her surroundings including personal and family moments. With the freshness and pleasant style she highlights the importance of happiness in turbulent times.’’
