Alice is a lecturer in Photography at the University of Cumbria. She completed an MA in Photography at London College of Communication in 2014 and has since exhibited and given lectures nationally and internationally. Her book, Nothing is Impossible Under the Sun, which brings together material gathered over two years working with migrants and refugees in Calais, was published by SOAP in 2016. Recent residencies include Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and Santa Fe Art Institute. Awards include the Jerwood Award and the IdeasTap/Magnum Photography Award, as well as awards from Creative Scotland and Grants for the Arts.

She works with photography, moving image and sound, engaging long-term with specific places and communities. She is interested in shared authorship and the conversations, negotiations and power dynamics that surround the photographic moment.

She is currently pursuing a practice-based PhD at Glasgow School of Art, funded by the Carnegie Trust. She is developing work in relation to incarceration and archives, building on Commonplace, a project that brought local archive imagery into HMP Dumfries as the basis for conversation and artwork. Recently, her project Nothing is Impossible Under the Sun was exhibited as part of Photographers Gallery New Talent.
