This blog is a special project site that uses my photography project “333 Saints: a Life of Scholarship” to contextualize the current political situation in Timbuktu, Mali. To see my other work please visit: www.alexandrahuddleston.com.
ALEXANDRA HUDDLESTON is an American photographer who was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone. She holds a BA from Stanford University and an MS in broadcast journalism from Columbia University. Her work has been published in The New York Times, Zeit Magazine, National Geographic Explorer, and exhibited worldwide. Among other honors, she was the recipient of a Fulbright Grant. Her prints are in the permanent collection of the US Library of Congress and the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art.
Her publication series, The Kyoudai Press, was created to provide a form through which she can connect the visual arts with literature and design in order to most powerfully tell her stories. In 2012 Huddleston published the collaborative artists’ book Lost Things under The Kyoudai Press. 333 Saints: A Life of Scholarship in Timbuktu is her second book.
