Cynthia was born in Buenos Aires in 1977. Since she was a child she has been enthralled by nature. At a very young age she first evidenced her gift for drawing and sports, while drawing and painting was developed spontaneously through self-study. Sports she undertook mainly during her childhood and adolescence, training for gymnastics and synchronized swimming.

Being a sports woman since age 6, she has shaped her personality which is based on discipline, effort and permanent spirit of improvement.

After her High School years, led by her innate passion, Cynthia decided to undertake Ecology and Environmental Studies followed by the career of Natural Sciences. Meanwhile, she also rediscovered music (which she had also studied in her childhood) now focusing on the guitar. Simultaneously, she resumed the practice of sports, becoming a dancer and acrobat.

While pursuing the career of Naturalist, Cynthia discovered Photography, which later became a core part of her life and an essential tool to transmit her knowledge and values of the natural world. She particularly specialized in macrophotography and her most outstanding portraits are on arthropods.

Many years now devoting herself to Conservation Projects, Cynthia worked for more than eleven years at the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences ‘Bernardino Rivadavia’. Now She is working at Darwinion Botanical Institute. She is also attending an arts workshop to continue improving her painting technique while teaching photography lessons and practicing sports as a hobby. A reading fan, she is also impassioned with biological evolution and Neurosciences.

In September 2017 she published his first book “The world of the small: an approach to the universe of arthropods from an artistic, visual and evolutionary perspective”

“In her photos as well as in her pictorial works of art, Bandurek stands out for her visual acuity and sensitivity at capturing the natural world. Something striking in her photographic work lies in the sensitivity she possesses to spot beauty in the tiny, along with her ductility with which she captures the photographic instant, the detail. She holds a unique sense which enables her to pay attention to that which not all of us could see, highlighted by the passion she gets from nature”


“Cynthia Bandurek, someone who combines art, science and esthetics. Needless to say, she possesses a certain vision of things and therefore this enables her to imagine landscapes where she has never been before and as a consequence transfer them to a painting implementing oil and acrylic strokes. In general, they are African landscapes, the Savana, lion families (‘I´d love to visit Africa, just its name makes my imagination run free’). But this young photographer and painter, who is also a dancer and acrobat in her spare time, has her mind set on Argentina”


“Cynthia Bandurek develops his life with passion and immersed in the art, science and aesthetics, with nature as a nexus of union. Through his photographs, Cynthia seeks to enjoy the privilege to closely observe the natural world but also trying to raise consciousness about what is hidden beyond the cement of the cities…”
