LIZ FERNANDO

Award-winning fine artist and photographer Liz Fernando is a graduate from the prestigious LCC Photography programme, University of Arts London. Fernando’s work mostly finds its roots in conceptual research.
Fernando was born, raised and entirely educated in Europe. Her research though at a personal as well as academic level into the role of photography highlights the different meanings that photography, inhabits, often dealing with the notions of memory wherein the personal archive inhabits a fundamental space, both aesthetically and practically within non-western cultures.
Her ideas surround the idea that the objective of a photograph ponders an evolving interplay between its fragile and fugitive existence.
Her work was exhibited at Tate Modern London and was showcased by the leading publisher Photoworks, Brighton. Her highly acclaimed work ‘Trincomalee – My father’s stories and the lost photographs’ has recently been acquired for the private collection of the Worldbank Headquarter in Washington D.C. and is currently on an international travelling exhibition.

She works from Hanover, Berlin and Colombo.
