Alexander Lindsay, b. 1961, creates monumental landscape photographs of extraordinary honesty, clarity and beauty. He has developed his own techniques to capture and print, in minute detail and on an epic scale, wilderness regions of the world at and beyond the edges of human influence. He pushes photographic processes and technology to extreme levels but choses to eschew all forms of photoshop manipulation or artifice. His photographic art process is as ‘pure’ as he can make it, reflecting the unsentimental, raw essence of the environments he lives in for his work.

In 2015, he came to photograph in the Grand Teton National Park of Wyoming, USA. Alexander’s initial interest in photography began aged 16 with an introduction to the works of Ansel Adams, who worked extensively, and who created some of his most iconic images, in this beautiful mountain range. Alexander spent the entire months of January and September 2015 walking and photographing in the mountains and National Park for a private commission. These works are now being exhibited for the first time to an American audience.

Following his extensive background as a war cameraman and deep ocean film maker, Alexander’s Tetons photographs can seduce with their beauty and detail, but behind these seductive images the very antithesis that modern life is increasingly about is laid out in huge and savage focus, bearing artistic witness to the fragility and rarity of our remaining untouched world.

For the past 35 years, Alexander has brought his film and stills cameras to some of the most extreme situations and environments on the planet. His earliest experiences living with and photographing the Maasai tribe in Tanzania led him in to documentary film making. He made war documentaries over a 5 year period in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation, immersing himself within both sides of the conflict. He then filmed within Iraq during the First Gulf War (subsequently returning to Iraq for the Second Gulf War in 2004). This was followed by 5 years of pioneering documentary filming and photography of the wreck of the Titanic, 4km beneath the ocean’s waves, at one point even entering the wreck itself in a submersible.

These varied documentary experiences ultimately led him to his freest artistic expression as a photographer of our imperiled natural world. Linking all his projects, Alexander has always sought to immerse himself in situations where, as he explains, ‘the imagination is rendered unnecessary’.

His work has been exhibited internationally, and his photographs are included in major private and corporate collections around the world. He also works on specific commissions for corporate and private clients.

Alexander will be available for private tours of the exhibition. This extensive exhibition presents limited edition photographs ranging in size from 40” to nearly 20 ft wide. All works will be for sale.

Alexander Lindsay - Southern African Photography 2019

Alexander Lindsay creates monumental landscape photographs of extraordinary honesty, clarity and beauty. He has developed his own techniques to capture and print, in minute detail and on an epic scale, wilderness regions of the world at and beyond the edges of human influence. He pushes photographic processes and technology to extreme levels but choses to eschew all forms of photoshop manipulation or artifice. His photographic art process is as ‘pure’ as he can make it, reflecting the unsentimental, raw essence of the environments he lives in for his work.

In 2017, he came to photograph in Southern Africa over a period of 7 months, focusing on Namibia, South Africa and Lesotho. During a time of intense drought and water rationing, his photography often reflects the cruelty or gift of rainfall, from the dying quiver tree forests of Namibia to the life affirming thunderous waterfalls and awe-inspiring green expanses of the Lesotho highlands. 

Following his extensive background as a war cameraman and deep ocean film maker, Alexander’s latest African photographs can seduce with their beauty and detail, but behind these seductive images the very antithesis that modern life is increasingly about is laid out in huge and savage focus, bearing artistic witness to the fragility and rarity of our remaining untouched world.

Alexander’s Southern African travels followed those of his ancestor, Lady Anne Barnard (néeLindsay), who arrived in Cape Town in 1797 as the wife of the British colonial secretary. This enterprising woman immediately fell in love with the country and her people. Encouraged by John Barrow and his tales of ‘The sublime and the beautiful, the tame and the terrible’regions of South Africa, she conducted a series of long expeditions in the Western Cape, recording her experiences in journals and watercolours. Her records show a fascination and admiration for all she encountered, and her watercolours are some of the most beautiful early records of the towns, countryside and inhabitants of South Africa.

Lady Anne and Alexander grew up in the same house in Scotland, where her paintings and writings provided seeds of inspiration for Alexander’s lifelong passion for extreme travel, filming and photography. During her time in Cape Town, Lady Anne built and lived in the house that has now become The Vineyard.

For the past 35 years, Alexander has brought his film and stills cameras to some of the most extreme situations and environments on the planet. His earliest experiences living with and photographing the Maasai tribe in Tanzania led him in to documentary film making. He made war documentaries over a 5 year period in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation, immersing himself within both sides of the conflict. He then filmed within Iraq during the First Gulf War (subsequently returning to Iraq for the Second Gulf War in 2004). This was followed by 5 years of pioneering documentary filming and photography of the wreck of the Titanic, 4km beneath the ocean’s waves, at one point even entering the wreck itself in a submersible.

These varied documentary experiences ultimately led him to his freest artistic expression as a photographer of our imperiled natural world. Linking all his projects, Alexander has always sought to immerse himself in situations where, as he explains, ‘the imagination is rendered unnecessary’.

His work has been exhibited internationally, and his photographs are included in major private and corporate collections around the world. He also works on specific commissions for corporate and private clients.

Alexander will be available for private tours of the exhibition. This extensive exhibition presents limited edition photographs ranging in size from 1 meter to 5 meters wide. All works will be for sale.
