Alice Marcelino is a London based photographer.
Born in Luanda, Angola, Alice moved to Portugal at a very early age, where she grew up and lived most of her life. She experienced and explored various art forms, from dance to theatre, until discovering and adopting photography as her main form of expression. Her images reflects her special interest in individual stories exploring concepts of identity and sub-cultures, and their meaning in our globalised world.
