Cintia Barroso was born in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, where she studied Marketing, but shortly realized that her real passion was in creating rather than in marketing production. She found her passion in photography, which she started by taking photographs of various subjects that would entice her vivid imagination.
Since some of her family was living abroad, she became passionate about traveling, and in 2004 relocated to Germany where she decided to pursue a career in photography. Besides working as a photographer’s assistant for many renowned photographers in the United States, Australia, and Germany, she also developed her own unique vision and prepared a fertile soil to bolster her creativity.
After several trips to Asia and Africa, in the year of 2013, Cintia published her first book in Germany entitled "Porträts aus Afrika und Asien."
In 2015, she had her first exhibition from her book at the Black Eye Gallery in Sydney -Australia.
In 2016, she brought the same exhibition to Düsseldorf - Germany.
From then on, Cintia started to work within the fashion industry and for different renowned magazines across the globe.
In 2018 she opened her studio in Germany, where she develops most of her creative concepts, from a small visual idea to the final creation of an image.
In 2019 she had another exhibition in Germany in Essen.
In January 2020 she was part of a group exhibition presenting black and white photography about silence and liberation.
Cintia’s passion and creative twist turn commercial images into art images, as well as vice-versa.
That is what makes her pictures so compelling, for they give rise not only to what you see but they are also suggestive of something more. Meticulous lighting composition combined with artistry is always going to be the foundation of any of the CBA Studio images.
