Alex Gandy is a self taught British photographer. His love of photography developed during his teenage travels in the UK and abroad where it became a way to explore and immerse himself in the places and cultures he visited.
His first long term project 'May Your Footsteps Fall On My Eyes' documents his 22,000 km bicycle ride across Asia from Istanbul to Bangkok. During his 15 month journey he found the spontaneous acts of kindness he received from roadside strangers an endless source of motivation and heartwarming reminder of our disposition to offer help to those in need. The project tells the story of his journey through the eyes of the people who offered to help him.
