Alex Stapleton - Magnum Photos

I was lucky enough to be present at a talk where Alex Stapleton spoke about her practice along with her role in Magnum photos. Followed by a portfolio review, at the time I have only started to work on my project about Venezuelan women. When Alex and I discussed my work she suggested ideas that I could incorporate with my portraits, which made my think about different aspects that my work could undertake.

Besides discussing my work, Alex spoke about a book she created in her final year at university. It was a piece of work around the theme of archives which I am familiarized with as last year I was working with archives for my photo book. It was inspiring to see someone that came from where we are right now working in such an influencial organisation.

Thank you Alex for your help, hope to see you soon.
