Support “Looking For Alice” by Sian Davey – Beautiful Photobook by a mother about her young daughter

England –   

About this project

Looking For Alice is an award-winning project by British photographer Sian Davey, which tells the story of her daughter Alice and their family, and all the joys, tensions, ups and downs that go with the territory of being in a family. Trolley Books are proud to be publishing a beautiful photobook of the series, and are asking our supporters on Kickstarter to pre-order a copy of the book, or other pledges, to support its production and make it possible.


THE BOOK There will be an introduction by David Chandler, renowned writer, editor and curator in the fields of contemporary photography, photographic history and the visual arts, and also Professor in Photography at Plymouth University. Looking For Alice will be a very special and beautiful book, and we will produce it to the highest quality and finish with cloth hardbound cover, foil-blocking and printed at our printers in Italy to highest possible standard. Our designer is Emma Scott-Child who has worked on some beautiful publications in the past, including a monograph by artist Rachel Howard, and was previously at Damien Hirst’s publishing house Other Criteria. It is ours and Sian’s aim that the book is an object that people will want to treasure. Specs of the book

100 pages 23 x 27 cm hardback clothbound and foilblocked cover Tatami 135 gsm matt coated paper


We aim to publish Looking For Alice during Paris Photo and at The Photographers’ Gallery, London in November. With your support on Kickstarter, and by pre-ordering copies of the book and other pledges, you will make this beautiful publication a reality. Many thanks to you all in advance!

“Looking for Alice came to our judges attention during last year’s Firecracker Grant. It shone for its unflinching look at contemporary family life – the highs of course, but often more importantly, the lows. It’s a time honoured visual story, but one that often crosses over into the saccharine or romantic. Davey’s considered approach manages to avoid this and transform the highly personal into a narrative we can all relate to.” Fiona Rogers, Firecracker Grant for European Women Photographers, and Global Business Development Manager Magnum Photos
