Ameena Rojee

I am a London-based artist and graduate of the University of the West of England, currently working for British Journal of Photography as the commercial campaign manager.

I am greatly intrigued by people, culture and the land we live on, because I come from a very mixed background - half-Spanish and half-Mauritian, and I was born in and grew up in South London! Because of this I experienced an incredible variety of different cultures and worlds as a child and still now as an adult, and it greatly influences me and my work today.

My style is an engaged one; as a photographer I always aim to participate as well as observe. I love to take part in new experiences and be fully involved.

I also run of the land & us, an online photography platform focusing on land and the people who live on it. We speak to and feature all sorts of photographers, from portraiture only to mixed media, young and emerging or the more established.
