Alice Miceli applies formal experimentation, investigative travel, and archival research to chart the visual, physical, and cultural manifestations of trauma inflicted on social and natural landscapes. In the Chernobyl Project, she documented the exclusion zone around the site of Chernobyl’s nuclear disaster using specially developed photographic processes. Her current research focuses on photographic representations of landscape, looking in particular into the space of land-mine fields.
