Alison McCauley is a Geneva-based documentary photographer who travels frequently to cover stories that interest her. The main themes that run through her work look at issues concerning identity and belonging, migration and living conditions. These interests were doubtlessly born from Alison's experiences of constantly moving from country to country and the resulting ambivalence towards the idea of her own national identity and her feeling of not belonging to any particular country or community. Among other projects, she is currently working on a long-term project documenting the lives of asylum seekers in Geneva.
Her work has been published by the BBC, Al Jazeera, The Telegraph, The Hindu Business Line and on the Foto 8 website. Alison has exhibited her photographs in Switzerland, France, England, Georgia, China and in the USA.
Alison has a fine arts background and holds degrees from the University of Southampton, the Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design in Geneva and the Open College of the Arts.
