An explorer of the metaphysical, theoretical and the fantastical - Alessandra is a crosser of borders. She looks to the natural world, scientific facts and fiction for inspiration and investigates the life of objects and their sculptural potential. Departing from their literal meaning Alessandra creates rich new juxtapositions both evocative and surreal which she translates into the emotional landscapes and dreamlike worlds of her photographs.
Alessandra graduated from the University of Westminster with a Masters Degree in Photographic Studies.
