Alexia Singh is Senior Lecturer on BA (Hons) Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communications. She is a multimedia producer and photo editor with 20 years’ experience in the news and NGO sectors. She has worked for Reuters, Magnum and Save the Children as a photo editor and producer.

Alexia began her career working for Reuters News Agency where she managed picture desks in London, Paris, and Singapore through major world events from the death of Pope John Paul II and the Iraq War to the 2016 migrant crisis.

She worked as an editor on assignments around the globe including the Oscars and the Sydney and London Olympics. As one of Reuters’ top editors she produced photo books, curated exhibitions, and worked on award-winning interactive stories.

In 2010 she was appointed Editor-in-Charge of Reuters’ award-winning app and website ‘The Wider Image’, leading a team of editors, writers, and photographers to create interactive storytelling on subjects including the financial crisis and climate change.

She joined Save the Children in 2016 where she directed content gathering for their two-year Search and Rescue operation rescuing immigrants from the Mediterranean Sea. Her role involved producing case stories, photo essays and films and managing all aspects of film and photo coverage. She went on to produce shoots in Somalia, South Sudan and Bangladesh creating visual assets for the 2017 Child Hunger Crisis campaign and the Rohingya Refugee Crisis campaign.

While at Save the Children, she was commissioned to produce their first ever podcast - an audio drama that she wrote and directed called ‘Anywhere but Home’.

She is currently combining her love of photography and literature as the Photography Director of ‘A Thousand Word Photos’ a non-profit organisation that brings together photographers and writers to create short stories inspired by photographs.
