ABOUT

artist portrait_saracuce.jpg

Sara Cucè is a London-based analog photographer and assistant curator, graduated in Photography at London Metropolitan University and currently attending an MA in Curating Art at LSBU and Whitechapel Gallery.

Her work explores questions of identity, representation, perception, memory, and the environment; it unravels identity and subjectivity as something that is never complete, but always in process, and invariably formed from within.

Cucè is the winner of the Life Framer Award 2022 and finalist of the LensCulture HOME '21 International Photo Prize in 2021,
the Magnum Photography Awards, the Magnum Print Swap Shop, the Royal Photographic Society IPE 160 and the Photography on a Postcard 2017.

 

Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions throughout United Kingdom, Italy and France.
