Angela ‘Giola’ Cassar’s work involves explorations about the human condition, continually questioning who we are to ourselves and to others. Since its inception she has been teaching the BA (Hons) in Photography course at MCAST.
Photography is her main medium, while also making use of the moving image when the need arises. In 2019 she published a photo-book, “Tessie”, in collaboration with writer Glen Calleja. Cassar’s latest project was “Bjuda”, an interdisciplinary publication and exhibition with Leanne Ellul and Kenneth Sacco.
Cassar holds a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Photography from the University for the Creative Arts, UK and an MA in Photography, from the University of Brighton, UK. Throughout the past years she has exhibited and published her work in Malta, London, Brussels, and Brighton. Cassar has also been shortlisted for the Belfast Photo festival 2022. In March 2022, her photographic essay accompanying Leanne Ellul’s essay was published in “Are we Europe’s”, Designing (for) Human’s, issue.
