Louise Fago-Ruskin is a writer, photographic artist and lecturer living and working in the South West. She holds an MA in Photography from the University of Brighton, a BA from Plymouth University and a PGCE. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in group shows such as The Hyeres Festival of Fashion and Photography (Hyeres, France), Arles Photography Open Salon (Installation, Arles), and Parallax (La Galleria, London). She is currently represented by La Galerie Sakura in Paris.
Louise's works have also been nominated for a variety of awards including 'Foam What's Next: A Search into the Future of Photography'. Her work examines notions of the unconscious, utilising the camera as a contemporary confessional space. She aims to tackle such themes as ideological manipulation, familial notions of separation and reformation, and performance as reparative action.
Louise has written various introductions for both bookworks and exhibition catalogues and is currently writing her novella to accompany her latest photographic work entitled ‘Holmland’.
