ART & ARTIFACTS
Whether a Rubens drawing, a David Smith sculpture or James Brown’s electric organ, Alex brings his knowledge of art, sensibilities, and technical skills to the task of giving the art object new life as a photograph. He has developed equipment and techniques for working on location in less than ideal circumstances. His projects include much of the catalogue photography for the National Portrait Gallery exhibit “Capital Portraits: Treasures from Washington Private Collections”. For the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, he has developed a fresh visual style suited to the wide-ranging character of the collection, which he is photographing for publication and museum-wide use.
