Alex Schwander (Photographer)
Alex has a diploma in communication design yet focusses on photography as his main subject. Since 1990 Alex succesfully works as a freelance photographer and designer. PURE and SIMPLE is what comes into one’s mind when first laying eyes on Alex’ pictures. Telling short stories within his productions - employing a minimalistic though manifested style. In reduced mode he concentrates on the essential: the centrally-focused figure or object. He applies this principle to portrait, advertising and editorial photography, whether taken in the studio or on location worldwide. The Swiss photographer has established his work-life environment in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Commercial images and editorials form his every-day business, but musicians, actors and artists are fond of being portrayed by his unique visual signature. Experimenting with classical portrait photography and modern techniques, Alex produces iridescent-realistic images that have been exhibited to great acclaim on several occasions. His commercial clients include AXA, BMW, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Post, Evonik, Mitsubishi, Nestlé and Siemens, as well as several fashion brands and publishers.
