Michele Allen is a photographic artist and researcher based in North East England. Her artistic and academic work is broadly concerned with sense of place, and is created in response to specific locations incorporating photography, video and oral history. Her practice often involves some degree of collaboration with communities in its production, and she has exhibited work as site-specific installations and more conventional gallery exhibitions.
She regularly presents papers about her work at conferences across the UK and has exhibited nationally. She has a PhD by photographic practice and her work has been supported by the AHRC and Arts Council England, works from her recent projects Public and Private and For the Elevation of Man have been acquired for permanent collections at Durham Castle and Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art.
