Rose Marie Cromwell (b. 1983, Sacramento, CA, based in Miami) is a photo and video artist, whose work explores the effects of globalization on the local and the tenuous space between the political and the spiritual. Her first book “El Libro Supremo de la Suerte” was published in 2018 by TIS books, and was awarded the Light Work Photo Book Prize named one of the “25 Best Photobooks of 2018” by TIME Magazine. In 2021 she published two books, “Eclipse” by TIS Books, and “A More Fluid Atmosphere” by Pomegranate Press. She has had solo exhibitions at Institute for Contemporary Art Miami, Diablo Rosso Gallery and Antitesis Gallery, both in Panama City, Panama, Institute 193 in Kentucky, and Filter Photo in Chicago. Her work has also been exhibited at The High Museum in Atlanta, Aperture Foundation in New York, PRIZM Art Fair in Miami, The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, and The Silver Eye Arts Center in Pittsburgh, among many others. Cromwell is recipient of a Fulbright Grant, A Getty Reportage grant, and was a Light Work AIR, and was an AIR at Oolite Arts in Miami.
