Alison Baskerville

documentary photographer

Alison Baskerville is a British documentary photographer and military veteran. She explores themes of conflict centered around gender stereotypes. Informed by a military career including tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq, she is currently exploring the relationship to the often compartmentalised approach to war and the invisible effects on veterans and citizens involved in modern conflict.

Alison’s first major piece of work, entitled The White Picture, looks at the role of women in the British Army. As a supporter of a more intersectional approach to gender, Alison is now looking at themes of masculinity and hyper-masculinity. She is interested in exploring these representations and working to document these themes in an individual and authentic way. In addition to her photographic work, she has recently set up a movement to deliver training to female journalists in relation to sexual and gender-based violence.
