Dr Saskia Coulson is a photographer, filmmaker, and researcher. She uses her diverse experience to explore complex global issues through visual storytelling.
Photography has always been a huge part of her life. Her parents met while working as photojournalists. From a young age, Saskia was in tow as they traveled to the far corners of the earth on assignment. This early exposure to photography and travel instilled in her a passion for still and moving image-making, which she developed further while studying Fine Art Photography at Glasgow School of Art.
Saskia photographs have featured in the New York Times, BBC News, and The Guardian and galleries in New York City, Copenhagen, and Glasgow. She is also a Research Fellow at the University of Dundee, Scotland where she uses photography and filmmaking to communicate ideas centered on environmental challenges and telling stories of people empowered to make a real difference.
