Alex Aristei

These are photographs of those I am closest to: friends, family members, lovers and of the things that compel me the most: nudity, violence, falconry, masculinity, sexuality, youth, and death. These subjects, and my daily process of recording them, inspire my love of photography.

Alex’s photography has been featured in student exhibitions at the Art Center in Pasadena as well as in the 2006 Photography Now exhibition at the Deja Design Gallery in Los Angeles CA.
