Alexia Fiasco

France

Alexia Fiasco is a French photographer whose practice focuses on the notions of identity and dual identity. She created the Parisian collective “Filles De Blédards” (or “daughters of immigrants”) to shine a light on the work of young female artists from ethnic minorities. We featured her series “ADN,” a collection of portraits of immigrant families in France, which capture them in powerful, confident poses, a project that combats the presumption that when a child of immigration finds their own individual path or identity, that it’s thanks to the country they’ve found themselves in rather than the love, support and determination of their own parents.
