Alice Myers

Alice's work explores possibilities within and around documentary practice. Her long-term projects engage deeply with specific places or communities, incorporating text, found images and moving image. She is interested in the camera as a starting point for interaction and negotiation, and continually questions her role as photographer and author.

Her book, Nothing Is Impossible Under the Sun, which combines material gathered over two years working with migrants and refugees in Calais, was published last year by SOAP. The project was shortlisted for the MACK First Book Award and exhibited at the Photographers' Gallery. Her work has been exhibited internationally and published in the Guardian, Aesthetica Magazine and Photoworks. Awards include the Jerwood Award and the IdeasTap Award. Residencies include the Santa Fe Art Institute and the BALTIC&bait Residency.

Alice is based Edinburgh and teaches at Cumbria Institute of the Arts and Edinburgh College of Art.
