Alex was born in Munich in 1970. He moved to London in the 80's and began documenting things around him shortly thereafter. I love to look a little longer at things and this probably comes from being surrounded by unusual characters as a child. My mother and father had a lot of interesting and colourful people in their lives. I often stared a little too long and probably still do. I'm interested in the 'Self'. I guess you would call it the Ego. I like to document, the way people present their Ego to the world. The odd things that stand out. The details we might normally miss through the dulling of familiarity.
At present I am working as director of photography on a Documentary on Girl Skateboarders.
