Profile

Alexander Komenda

Photographer

Originally from Ottawa, Canada, with Polish roots, Alexander (b.1992) has been primarily making work around communities; exploring themes such as psychology, marginalisation, externality, colonisation and youth; culminating in observational and performative documentary narratives. The key is engaging dialectically with subjects - dignifying their presence and incorporating their input to shape their stories; maximizing their participation in the work. This approach is equally if not more important off camera, to engage whole-heartedly and help establish a dignified sense of rapport. Much of his interest lies in topical issues, which are largely geopolitically rooted, intersecting with historical, mythological and philosophical themes.
