Alys is an editorial and fine art documentary photographer based in London.
Alys grew up in Brighton and went on to study English Literature and Communications at the University of Leeds. After graduating, she moved to New York for a year and was given her first commission for Time Out, before coming back to London to study photography at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She recently completed a part-time MA in Anthropology of Travel, Tourism and Pilgrimage (Distinction) at SOAS, University of London, which ties in with her long-term, personal project about pilgrimage.
Her book Ex-Voto was published by GOST Books in 2019 and she has just self-published her latest book Lost Summer. Alys combines commissioned work for editorial, design and advertising clients with personal work, which she publishes and exhibits. Alys is currently working on a feature-length documentary film called Mother Vera, which she is co-directing with Cécile Embleton.
