Photographic documents on extreme, socio-political issues


Alice portrait bw

Alice Miceli's work applies investigative travel and historical research that works with the virtual, physical and cultural manifestation of trauma inflicted on social and natural landscapes, exploring its history and continued use of the media with which they have been represented. Interested in the challenging notions of traditional journalism and documentary photography, she creates alternative photographic documents on extreme, socio-political issues.
