Tamara Cedré was born in Brooklyn, New York and was raised in Central Florida. She completed her MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art where her studio research tested photography as a personal, political tool of documentation. Her recent work mines historical and personal archives that articulate diasporic identity shaped by the colonial status of her family's homeland of Puerto Rico. An except from her series Revelar, Recontar, Reclamar was recently curated into the publication 'Recent Findings' for the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography and published in the photography journal Saint Lucy. She currently teaches photography in Southern California and spends her summers on the island.
