I am self-driven and choose to take on personal long-term photo projects where I am able to engage and gain the trust of those I photograph. It is important for me to connect with my environment and those that make it up, photography allows me to do this; through my camera I explore, connect and try to understand the world around me. I hope that others are able to relate and mirror themselves in my pictures.

Having grown up and lived in Mexico for most of my life in a Mexican-British home, I therefore identify as Mexican. I am a photographer currently based in Manchester who's practice is centred on documentary photography and portraiture which often explores themes of migration, identity, memory, place, belonging and cultural dislocation. I work collaboratively and independently.

I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at the National Faculty of Art & Design, National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City (UNAM) in 2006 and have exhibited my work predominantly in the UK.

I currently work part-time at The University of Bolton in Greater Manchester and collaborate with the Manchester based Centre for International Women Artists (CIWA).

I am available for private commissions at: roxallison@gmail.com
