"My work focuses on dancers and movement artists, capturing their beautiful feats of athleticism. I prefer black and white photography because it dramatically highlights the physical form. I often include fantasy elements, and feathers, with recurring themes of flight, strength, and surrender"
Ren was the photographer for cocodaco dance project, and the in-house photographer for Foster Dance Studios. She's collaborated with David Maurice, Echo Modern Dance, Evanston Dance Ensemble, Little Fire Artist Collective, Moonwater Dance Project, Purus Motus, Savannah Dunn, Trifecta Dance Collective, and Winifred Hann & Dancers.
Her work has been shown at The Living Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, on The Dance Enthusiast, at Take Up Space Dance Festival, Unearth Festival’s Efflorescence and in-person show Regenerate, the Evanston Made Group Show, Evanston Made Pop-up, and the 1100 Florence Gallery. Movement artist Mo Naughton as The Dark Angel was included in Filter Photo’s Photo Dock. Her capture of dancer Emily Brand from the Fall Series was reproduced as a painting by artist Michael Goldzweig, and a shot of dancer Amara Barnes was reproduced in a series of sketches by Dutch artist, Hebe Boerhout. Her work with movement artist Savannah Dunn and a recent 2022 solo exhibition were reviewed by MUSÉE Magazine.
