Our People

Louise Fago-Ruskin

Lecturer

Louise Fago-Ruskin is an artist, writer 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 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.

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'.

Louise has recently been selected from over 500 artists, writers and historians to take part in the Arquetopia International Mentorship Programme - a highly respected not-for-profit organisation in Puebla, Mexico and has recently published a photographic essay in The Image Journal (edition 103), a literary and arts quarterly edited by Aaron Rosen (" Art and Religion in the 21st Century") and is looking forward to a guest essay in the pending publication The Liminal Loop from The Lutterworth Press.
