Grainsplaining #6 Alex, NAS and The School of YouTube

Happy New Year! We are back with a brand new (but old) episode, recorded at the end of last year and we cover A LOT, so buckle in!

Recorded ahead of the launch of Alex’s fantastic campaign with NAS- the National Autistic Society, in this episode we chat about Alex’s latest photography project, “Now I Know”, where Alex photographed six incredible Autistic women and non-binary people, documenting their stories, in their words.

It is a beautiful, moving campaign, and we can’t wait for you to learn all about it. In this episode Alex also tells us more about her story with autism, and how it has led her to where she is today.

Of course it wouldn’t be Grainsplaining with some extra feminism chat, so we also cover smashing the patriarchy and similar issues. Alex has some top notch advice for those who want to break into the photography industry, so we hope this can be some fantastic motivation to kick off 2023 with!
