Alison Stolwood

I work using photography, and moving image. I am interested in notions of time, change and a perception of things in the world. How we use art, technology and observation to monitor and understand our surroundings. My work highlights a relationship between habitat and inhabitants and considers how much we affect the spaces around us.

I have exhibited in the UK and internationally. I have been selected for Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed 2012 at The Photographers Gallery, London and have also been selected for The New Contemporaries showing at the ICA 2011, and the Catlin Guide 2012. I have had work in various publications including in the British Journal of Photography, The Guardian, and Source: The Photographic Review.
