Alice Mann’s intimate portraiture essays explore the picture-making process as an act of active collaboration. She aims to create images that empower her subjects and creates projects over extended periods, allowing for engaged and nuanced representations. Her work has been published in international publications including The New York Times, The Guardian, The New Yorker and the British Journal of Photography. It has also been exhibited at Red Hook Labs in New York, Unseen Amsterdam and the recent edition of Addis Foto fest. Her series Drummies won the 2018 Lensculture prize and the PHMuseum Women’s ‘New Generation’ prize for an emerging photographer. She was awarded the 2018 Taylor Wessing portraiture prize, marking the prize’s first attribution to a series of works. She won the Photography Grand Prix du Jury at Hyères International Festival in 2019.
