b.1992  Scandiano

Artist living and working between London and Modena. She graduated from London College of Communication in 2016 with a BA (Hons) in Photography.  Her work retraces her personal family history drawing on her Togolaise heritage, and the idea of origins. The theme of family is explored through self-portraits in which she plays her mother and father, narrating their experience of migration from Togo to Italy. Her images are partially informed by the West African studio portrait tradition.
