Inês d’Orey was born in Porto in 1977. She studied photography at London College of Printing, 2002. Most of her artistic work focuses on the transformation of the heritage’s identity in the contemporary city, where the architectural object presents itself as a subject of memory, changing meaning over time. Architecture, the polis, the boundary between public and private space, the investigation on places and their contexts, are some of the elements that make up Inês’s body of work, whose main medium is photography, although with fusions with installation and video. Since 2001, she regularly exhibits in Portugal and abroad (United Kingdom, Denmark, Italy, Belgium). Her work is part of several private and public collections, including the EDP Foundation (PT), the Oliva Arauna Coleción (ES) or the Galleri Image (DK) . In 2007, she was the winner of the Novo Talento Fotografia FNAC award. She published two books “Mecanismo da troca”, 2010, and “porto interior”, 2011. Inês d’Orey is represented by Galeria Presença (Porto) and Galeria das Salgadeiras (Lisbon).
