Alexander became devoted to the medium of photography in earlier 20s and became inspired by the 1920’s era in seeing and thinking. The medium's entire entity of raising the voice that speaks on behalf of the truth. Thus developing the poetic voice in seeing the World within the authenticity of Black and White analogue photography. The ones, which belong to sublime realism, and are deepened, through the existence and one’s heart.
The voice that is encompassing, reaching well beyond the printed, and thus introducing the photographic message that is continuous and exclusively humane. Telling stories about life, movement and us, to part and embody with in its final act of creation that takes place at home, with hope and in the darkroom.
