Born in Lisbon, Rita Barros has lived in New York since 1980, where she studied Photography and started her artistic career. Her work lies on the borders between a documentary and a self-reflexive approach. Always starting from a stictly subjective point of view, she distinguished herself by a look upon realities and subjects such as the daily life at the mythical Chelsea Hotel, the September 11 attacks, the self-portrait or the moment within the photographic image.
