Liz Fernando is an award-winning fine artist and photographer, born and raised in Germany. Fernando graduated from the University of Arts, London, LCC. The concept of an evolving interplay between the fragile and fugitive existence of a photograph lies at the heart of Fernando’s work, which often derives itself from a sense of nostalgia, building upon a personal archive of aesthetic and practical reflections within non-western cultures. Her work has been exhibited at the Tate Modern, London and showcased by Photoworks UK. Her highly acclaimed work, “Trincomalee – My Father’s Stories and the Lost Photographs” was recently acquired for the private collection of the World Bank Headquarters in Washington DC and is currently on an international traveling exhibition. Fernando lives and works in London, Hanover and Colombo.
