The South West Region of the Royal Photographic Society are hosting the RPS sponsored lecture by award-winning photographer Alixandra Fazzina this spring.
Alixandra Fazzina (UK, 1974) focuses with her photography on under-reported conflicts and the often forgotten humanitarian consequences of war. Alixandra has an uncanny ability to work in the most difficult social and geographical environments and is recognised for her compassionate and empathetic approach towards the human condition, always fully aware of the bigger picture. Her photographs cut to the core but are never imposing with a luminous chiaroscuro aesthetic that is distinctly quiet, yet descriptive.
Studying Fine Art, she began her career as a war artist in Bosnia. Since then, she has worked independently as a photojournalist throughout Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Her reportages have been widely published in the British and international press including The Sunday Times, The Guardian and Observer, The Telegraph and The Independent as well as TIME, Newsweek, The New York Times and Stern. She works regularly with UN agencies and NGOs to document their work and produce advocacy campaigns.
This event is open to all with free entry for students and RPS members (non-members £5 payable at the door). Doors open at 17:30.
Alixandra will be available for book signing after her talk.
