Visual Art – New York - Brooklyn, NY

Alex was raised in Germany and moved to the United States at the age of 11. He received his BFA from the Art Institute of Boston with a focus on alternative photographic process. After working in the New England art world and having several exhibitions, he moved to Los Angeles to work as gallery director at Gallery Luisotti, in Los Angeles. His work there with American New Topographics photographers would go on to inform his own future works. Returning to New York to pursue commercial photography he worked with clients ranging from MoMA to top restaurants, boutique hotels, and emerging musicians. He would eventually take a position as Steve Aoki's tour photographer, traveling the world with the electronic music producer and documenting his exploits. His travels eventually brought him to Iceland where he fell in love with the dramatic beauty of its volcanic landscape. The abstract photographic series, Water / / Light was born during this time, influenced by the drastic fluctuation of light in the far northern latitude, as well as the abundance of drastic and diverse water sources. Since then he has been pursuing this series throughout his travels and turning his focus to more political landscapes of water. His work was recently included in Saatchi Arts The Other Art Fair in NYC, with upcoming shows in Berlin, Miami and Los Angeles in 2018. ...more
