A selection of work by Paris-born, London-raised and New York-based photographer Alexandra Dewez. Using images as a way to connect and convey specific emotions and urges, Dewez’s observational expressions revolve around two distinct themes, as she explains:
“The first is the expressiveness of both animals and natural environments, their rawness and lack of self-censorship, their power, obvious in life and maintained in death. The second is the human skin, in all its variants, all its contortions, in detail and as a whole body. Whether confronted accidentally with the image or extracting it from my brain through staging, the resulting photograph allows me to communicate in the most precise and honest way I know how. With the hope of being understood but the declaration itself being the essence.”
