Anna Drozd is a visual storyteller concerned with social and environmental justice within Eastern European contexts. She is fascinated by the ethical possibility of docu-fiction projects: on the one hand they produce highly-politicised and effective testimonies to reality. On the other hand, “they serve as “safe” fine art spaces, sheltered and abstracted enough from daily experience to grant creators, participants, and viewers alike the ability to productively intervene into individual and/or collective identity.”
Documentary photographer Katie McCraw focuses on family, nostalgia and memory. She is fascinated by the circular narrative of time.
