Biography


Alison Baskerville is a documentary photographer who works on projects exploring conflict, the military, and issues of gender, in particular the experiences of women. She is interested in challenging conventional representations and responding to contexts in an individual and authentic way

Alison has been commissioned by numerous charities and organisations including the Royal British Legion, Women for Women UK, and Humanity & Inclusion, and her photographs have been published in Marie Claire, The Guardian and the BBC.

Her first solo show, The White Picture, documented the lives of women serving in the British Army, and was exhibited at The Oxo Gallery, London, in 2012. Her recent series Soldier is featured in the major exhibition No Man’s Land: Women’s Photography and the First World War, which premiered at Impressions Gallery, Bradford, in 2017 and is currently on a national tour. She was featured in the short television documentary ‘Character Uncovered’ in 2015.

A former soldier and military photographer who has served in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, Alison has an MA in Photojournalism from the University of Westminster. In addition to her photographic work, she is an experienced educator who has led engagement and community programmes with The Forge, in Co. Durham, and Maudlin College School in Oxford.

Alison also leads hostile environment and first aid training workshops for freelance journalists and aid workers, and co-founded Powering the Matriarchy Together (P.M.T), Birmingham’s pioneering festival celebrating womxn and non-binary people. She is also the recent recipient of a Developing Your Creative Practice grant from Arts Council England to explore film processes and photographic-based research and create a safe place for researching personal memories and archives which will require reflection on her military past to enable her journey as a more critically engaged artist.
