Belén Cerezo is an artist-photographer. Within her practice and research, photography operates as the guiding notion to investigate the muteness, the lack of innocence and the codification of photographs and how images mediate our experience when they are also mediated by other images. In the last years, she has worked mainly with existing images and focusing on their materiality of images, she explores photography through performance.
Belén Cerezo completed a practice-led PhD at Nottingham Trent University in 2015 where she is an associate lecturer in Photography. She has taken part in workshops led by the artists Antoni Muntadas and Jean Luc Moulène. She is also interested in art education and she co-coordinated the Education Department for Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain, 2010. Cerezo published the photo-book Somewhere Better, Nowhere Better in 2009. She had a solo exhibition titled Plastic People at CAB in Burgos, Spain, in 2008.
