Artist Talk : Almudena Romero


Artist Almudena Romero will be explaining her wet collodion projects, focusing on her tintype work, as well as on the commissions she has received to set up pop- up collodion darkrooms at institutions such as the V&A, the National Portrait Gallery and the University of the Arts London. Almudena will be explaining the history and the technicalities of the wet collodion process and how museums and galleries might approach the subject of teaching early processes in-house. 

Born in Madrid in 1986, Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with a wide range of photographic  processes from early printing techniques such as cyanotype, salt printing or wet plate collodion, to new technologies including 3Dscanning and printing. Since 2015,  Almudena has shown and explained her practice at TATE Modern-TATE Exchange, TATE Britain, The Photographers’ Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Whitechapel Gallery, the London Art Fair and the University of the Arts London, and delivered courses and lectures at National Portrait  Gallery, the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, the Mapfre Foundation, the Sotheby’s  Institute of Art, University of Westminster, Kingston University and Southampton Solent University. She has also received commissions to produce installations in public spaces from Team London Bridge, Southwark Council, Emergency Exit Artist, Wellcome Trust and University College London. Her work has been published in TimeOut, DUST magazine, Uncertain States and Photomonitor.

Almudena’s practice uses photographic processes to reflect on issues relating to identity, representation and ideology; such as the role of photography in the construction of national identity, or the link between photographic archives and colonialism. Her work focuses on how photographic processes and technology transform the notions of public, private, individuality, identity, memory, and, in general, the concept of the individual.  Almudena’s works touch on how perception affects existence and how photographic processes contribute to organising perception.
