Alesha is a Bristol based fashion and documentary photographer, who embraces the playful and experimental nature of this medium. Her work is rooted within an editorial practice, yet still utilising tools such as location and styling in order to embed narrative and storytelling within her photography. Collaborating with other artists, designers, stylists, hair and make–up artists, as well as photographers and filmmakers, has become a vital part of both her practice and process. Just last year, Alesha was invited to photograph at both New York and Paris Fashion Week which enriched her knowledge and love for fashion photography even further.
Most recently, Alesha has created a body of work re-visiting a favourite childhood novel; The Famous five, by Enid Blyton. By capturing modern clothing within the fashion idiom and a range of diverse, re-imagined characters, Alesha aims to challenge social issues identified within the original series of books, such as racism, homophobia, and sexism. This project titled ‘The Promise of Happiness’ has been made into a magazine and an accompanying short film.
