Alexandra Huddleston

Alexandra Huddleston is a photographer, writer, and walking artist. Born in Freetown, Sierra Leone and raised in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, and Bamako, Mali, her upbringing has led her to explore landscape and culture from an international and interdisciplinary perspective. Between 2009 and 2014, she walked thousands of miles on pilgrimage in Spain, France, and Japan – journeys that led to her current walking art practice.

Alexandra presents her work to the public through books, exhibitions, and lectures. She holds a Masters of Letters in Fine Art Practice from the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. She studied broadcast and print journalism (MS) at Columbia University, USA and fine art and East Asian studies (BA) at Stanford University, USA. Alexandra has won a Fulbright Grant, and her work is in collections around the world including the Smithsonian, the British Library, and the Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain. As creative director and co-founder of the Kyoudai Press, her major publications include ‘Lost Things’ (2012), ‘333 Saints: A Life of Scholarship in Timbuktu’ (2013), ‘East or West’ (2014), ‘Vertigo’ (2016), ‘Traces of Time’ (2022), ‘Orientation’ (2023) and ‘A Walk in the Park’ (2023).
