Rebeca Cygnus is a talented 23-years-old freelance photographer and artist based in Madrid, Spain. She completed a diploma in photographic arts and continued her studies by undertaking a masters in fine art photography at the EFTI school in Madrid. Her work has been exhibited at photoespaña, the international festival of photography and visual arts and Galerie Cero. Rebeca also won the prestigious first place Florence Shanghai Prize 2013 for photography.
Rebeca’s collection of self-portraits which are at once nostalgic, melancholic and feminine, examine the beauty of solitude. Captured in the dark hours, when the line between reality and fiction becomes finer, her photographs are surreal and magical. Blue is the unifying colour in Rebeca’s series which helps portray beautiful characters who have an underlying feeling of inner conflict. She uses visual poetry to explore these depths of human emotion, and ultimately the relations between humans and the natural world.
