Fiona Compton is a London based Saint Lucian photographer. After graduating from London College of Printing in 2005 with a BA in photography, Fiona has been working as a professional photographer for the past 12 years, working for the UK's largest publishing houses, travelling between the UK and Europe to photograph some of the most influential figures in the world of Finance and Banking.
Influenced highly by her Caribbean heritage, much of her personal work explores representation of Caribbean culture in popular culture, challenging the perception of what is 'iconic' in the world of the Arts.
Her Recreations of Icons series focuses on re writing the narrative on some of the most well known images in the world, incorporating aspects of Caribbean life and culture and challenging the concept of representation in the mainstream.
Fiona also explores through her photography and filmmaking the inner struggle and incessant dialogue within ourselves. Through her duplicity series, she brings to life the internal battles that most of of us can relate to. Much of her work surrounds self empowerment, identity and challenging representation, with that her work has led her to be part of several public speaking engagements, both locally and internationally.
