Artist
Alex Ember San Francisco, California

Alex is a photographic artist living and working in San Francisco. He skillfully captures enticing patterns, textures, and shapes that he encounters in daily life. Alex often “remixes” these images, a self-developed process in which he takes two pieces of analog film, layers them on a slide, and photographs them. The resulting images have an atypical depth, and require the viewer to embark on a visual investigation upon encountering each dynamic photograph.

    Hello Alex, Is this photograph on paper? Would it need to be framed. It looks like it is on canvas…please clarify. Thanks, Henri Coleman
