Alixandra Fazzina (UK, 1974) focuses with her photography on under-reported conflicts and the often forgotten humanitarian consequences of war. Alixandra has an uncanny ability to work in the most difficult social and geographical environments and is recognized for her compassionate and empathetic approach towards the human condition, always fully aware of the bigger picture.

Studying Fine Art, she began her career as a war artist in Bosnia. Since then, she has worked independently as a photojournalist throughout Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Alixandra worked over a period of two years to chronicle the exodus of migrants and refugees from Somalia to the Arabian Peninsula. The resulting book “A Million Shillings: Escape from Somalia” was published by Trolley (2010) and re-launched in Arabic (2011).

Pep Bonnet (Mallorca, 1974) is an award-winning filmmaker and photographer who has travelled extensively capturing profound moments that represent the unbalanced world in which we live. His longer-term projects focus on African issues, with his most well known project being “Faith in Chaos”, a photo essay on the aftermath of the war in Sierra Leone. Pep’s ongoing work around the globe on HIV/Aids and identity has led to several photography books and many exhibitions worldwide.

He is also known for a long-term reportage on the rock ‘n roll band Motörhead. Pep spent many years (2008-2015) on the road with Lemmy Kilmister, the legendary singer of the band and created an exceptional visual document of the many hours spent on the road with Motörhead.
