Lorena Cordero


Lorena Cordero was born in 1971, in Quito, Ecuador. She is a photographer and digital artist. She attended Parsons School in New York and later transferred to Parsons Paris. She returned to her country of origin before concluding her college studies, which largely makes her a self-educated professional. The limited materials and resources she faced when she returned home opened a huge door for her. She learned to take advantage of what she had available and experimented. Practice turned out to be Lorena’s best school. She kept on experimenting and created new images from her initial ones. She discovered the world of manipulation and tried new techniques with no apparent direction – chaos, pain, restlessness, silence. It was through persons that she fell in love with the camera once again. She learned to look beyond seeing and to listen beyond hearing. Taking pictures, thus, became something infinite because she reflects herself through portraits. Photography is healing.

Together with her colleague and husband Simón Brauer they created Neurona Digital, a small company devoted to different aspects of photography. She is currently living in Quito, Ecuador.

During her career as a photographer, Lorena has performed several individual and collective exhibits.

Since 2007 she has obtained several honorable mentions from IPA (International Photography Awards) and the Silver Award from the Canon Creative Asia Awards 2010.

Lorena Cordero, nace en 1971 en Quito Ecuador, es fotógrafa y artista digital. Asiste a Parsons Nueva York y luego se transfiere a Parsons Paris. Regresa a su país de origen antes de finalizar sus estudios universitarios lo cual la convierte en gran parte auto-didacta. La limitación de materiales y recursos con los que se encuentra a su regreso le abren una puerta enorme. Aprende a sacar provecho de lo que tiene a su alcance y experimenta.  La práctica se convierte en su mejor escuela. Experimenta más y de sus imágenes iniciales crea nuevas.  Descubre el mundo de la manipulación y prueba nuevas técnicas sin rumbo aparente. Caos, dolor, inconformidad, silencio. Se re enamora de la cámara a través de las personas. Aprende a mirar más allá de ver y a escuchar más allá de oir y entonces el hacer fotos se transforma en algo infinito porque a través del retrato ella se refleja, la fotografía es sanación.

 Sus propuestas  artísticas conllevan una búsqueda en la emocionalidad humana.

En conjunto con su colega y esposo Simón Brauer crean Neurona Digital, una pequeña empresa dedicada a diferentes aspectos de la fotografía. Actualmente vive en Quito, Ecuador.

En su trayectoria como fotógrafa cuenta con varias exposiciones individuales y colectivas.

Desde 2007 ha obtenido varias menciones de honor en el IPA (International Photography Awards) y el Silver award en the Canon Creative Asia Awards 2010.

  1. Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  4. Good post. I be taught something more difficult on totally different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to read content material from different writers and observe slightly something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content material on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a hyperlink on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
