Stenram's art practice revolves around photography and post-production. By treating photographic images as data or raw material
to be excavated, mined and processed, she subjects archival material to digital manipulation. As Stenram sifts through these past and
present artefacts, she re-imagines and reconfugures the symbols and ideologies at play in the source material. The original functions
of the photographs are disrupted, enhanced or subverted, the photographs’ exact temporal and cultural coordinates rendered ambivalent.
Her work is ultimately about being a viewer, a consumer of images.

Eva Stenram studied in London at the Slade School of Art and Royal College of Art. She recently exhibited in Die Biennale für
Aktuelle Fotografie
, Germany, The Riga Photography Biennale, as part of the internationally touring exhibition A Handful of Dust,
and at the Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles. Her work is in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Gallery
London, and Moderna Museet in Stockholm. She was selected as one of the 100 Heroines of contemporary global photography by
The Royal Photographic Society (GB) in 2019, first prize winner of The Cord Prize for Photography (GB), finalist of the Aperture
Portfolio Prize (US) and the Hyères International Photography Competition (FR) in 2013 and was also a finalist of Le Prix
Découverte des Rencontres d’Arles (FR) in 2012. Originally from Sweden, she currently lives and works in Berlin.
