Melissa Alcena

Melissa Alcena is a Bahamian portrait and documentary photographer based in Nassau, Bahamas. In 2012 she completed an Applied Photography course at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Melissa moved back to The Bahamas in 2016, where she became inspired to take portraits of working class and marginalised Bahamians in their environments. Her work focusses on shifting the paradise narrative of the Caribbean, by directly engaging with the people of The Bahamas in the everyday and tapping into the humanity of its citizens.
