ALMA HASER will graduate this summer, after completing her BA (Hons) in Photography in Art Practice at Nottingham Trent University. Bilingual in English and German, she comes from a family steeped in arts and the creative industries, both in the UK and in Europe. Aged 13, she accompanied her mother and younger brother on a round-the-world trip, culminating in a six-month stay on the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. Travel continues to be one of her great passions. After graduation, she is planning a second world trip, but this time centred on her photography projects.
In the summer of 2009, Alma’s first formal work experience was with Emily Stein and Celia Willis’s London-based We Are Photogirls group, which organised fashion photography workshops for youth groups and creative young people.
While in the second year of her course, Alma was one of five students to represent Nottingham Trent University for an eight week curating project, called Hover, based in the Flying Horse Walk shopping mall in Nottingham city center.
Alma has also gained first-hand knowledge of the art gallery business, in both private and public sectors, assisting with dozens of exhibitions at Ale & Porter Arts in Bradford on Avon, near Bath, and subsequently at the New Brewery Arts in Cirencester. Her publicity photographs are regularly used as large-format exhibition interpretation boards and posters, exhibition invitations and advertising materials for the artistic programme at New Brewery Arts.
Additionally, she has contributed images for mass-market books published in the UK and the US.
