Next Generation 2017: Altered Landscapes

As part of a yearly collaboration with the London College of Communication, Aesthetica presents an exciting list of emerging artists who utilise photography as a medium through which to highlight, accentuate and solidify the transient intimacy of human nature.

Rafaela Fahn Schoffman is a London-based freelance photographer, with an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from LCC. After high school, Schoffman spent a year living in Jaffa in a pre-army program of the Israeli Reform Movement, where she studied and volunteered in various establishments. Shen served the mandatory two years in the Air Force of the IDF as an air traffic controller. After her service, Schoffman traveled the world from Central America, Australia and New Zealand, to South East Asia, where she truly decided to follow her passion and become a photographer. Her latest series, (dis)comfort zones, traces the artist’s journey back into defamiliaried landscapes, assessing a territory with new eyes and changed perspectives.
