Her work documents lives and stories of coexistence and resistance in precarious times; from encounters with the street dogs of Istanbul and the citizens who care for them, to the long drawn-out closure of the East London housing estate where the artist once lived and whose residents she filmed over seven years. Zimmerman is co-founder of the artists’ collective Fugitive Images and the filmmaking collective Vision Machine.
