Renée Anna Cornue is a photographer based in Durango, Colorado. She owns Renee Cornue Studio, a creative space in Downtown Durango where she spends her time developing various mediums of creative expression. 


She enjoys the challenge of responding to and interpreting her given environment through street photography more than anything. Irony and human expression are common threads in her work, as a whimsical, bruised optimist.


Renée is also the in-house photographer for the Stillhouse Junkies.


Her primary photography formats are 4”x5" and 35mm, and digital. She enjoys the love labor of developing and scanning her own film, as well as creating her own prints, giving each image an objectness.
