Adriana Duque was born in Manizales, Colombia in 1968. In that city she completed her undergraduate studies in Fine Arts at the University of Caldas. In 2001 Adriana was awarded a scholarship by both the Colombian government and the French embassies, which enabled her to study digital photography in Barcelona (Spain) and travel throughout several cities in France where she had the opportunity to visit some of the most important collections of classic painting as well as attend the International Photography Festival of Arles in the south of France.
In 2001 Adriana began her photographic work. From the beginning she showed a great interest in the idea of endless childhood, filled by the ambiguous characters from the magic world of the fairy tales and complemented by elements borrowed from rural contexts.
Since 1998 Adriana Duque has followed a continuous and personal creative path, a sort of intimate visual search in which reality turns out to be a shifting and uncertain territory.
