Getting to Know Alex

The second after you take a photo, Alex Kain says, your subject is a little older, a little closer to dying. While this sounds morbid, he thinks photography reminds us to protect fragile environments and to find the spaces that let us feel youthful, bright and assured. Case in point: while shooting in the Arctic, his team had an armed guard on deck the entire time in case polar bears attacked. Outside of his daytime engineering job at Apple and his photography, Alex collects antique maps and currencies.
