Alexander Cabeza Trigg

Studio tutor

Alexander Cabeza Trigg (1993) is a photographer and filmmaker from Barcelona, Spain. He holds a BA in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Barcelona and graduated from the first cohort of the MA Photography and Society at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK), where he now teaches.

His work seeks to merge the reflexive and participatory qualities of anthropology with the freedom and ambiguities that a more artistic approach allows. This results in a shared documentary practice that is grounded in a local setting and closely involves participants in the creative process. Engaging in a playful and co-imaginative process in which real experiences, places and people are acknowledged as a means to explore beyond the narrow confines of traditional documentary.
