Alison is a British documentary photographer based in the UK. A recent fellow with the International Women's Media Foundation and military veteran she has explored and produced work in Afghanistan, Gaza, Mali and Somaliland. Her first major exhibition was held at the Oxo Gallery in London in 2012.  Alison produced the series the 'White Picture' looking at the role of women in the British Army in Afghanistan.  This early work has provided the under lying narrative to her commitment to accurately document the continued role and representation of those who identify as women in the armed forces. As a supporter of a more intersectional approach to gender Alison is now looking at themes of masculinity and hyper masculinity.  She is interested in exploring these representations and working to document these themes in an individual and authentic way.
