ABOUT

Hi, I’m Alex.

 

I'm a photographer and multidisciplinary artist specializing in creative portraiture. I have an editorial background, so my work is story-driven and narrative in nature. I focus on making genuine connections with everyone I work with, and creating a space where they can express who they truly are. My goal is to produce images that move, improve, and empower others.

 

My most recent work examines gender, expression, and meaning in the context of how we experience our own identities and how others perceive us. My photographs tend to focus on representation of the many aspects that make up an individual. We all overflow the boxes that society has laid out for us, and the more we can upend expectations and assumptions, the more of an impact we can have.

 

I have exhibited my work at the Photographic Resource Center in Boston, MA as well as various smaller galleries in both Boston and New York. My photographs have been featured in The Boston Globe and The Rainbow Times. In 2018 I received a Project Grant from Mass Humanities to fund the solo exhibition of one of my latest projects, Beyond the Binary.

 

In addition to photography and my craft-based practices, I also volunteer my time to the Boston LGBTQIA Artist Alliance helping to put on exhibitions that showcase queer artists in the Boston area, and to Greater Boston PFLAG publicly speaking to children and adults about LGBTQ issues.

 

I reside near Boston, MA, but am available to travel anywhere you need me. I am available for portrait, lifestyle, and travel photography - but if there's a unique and specific idea you have and you're not sure where it fits, let's talk! You can reach me at alexmanciniphoto@gmail.com.
