Alex Poll

Curator, Educator and Photographer

Born in Belper, Derbyshire, Alex studied biochemistry in Leeds initially, always having had passions in both science and the arts. Later he moved to photography and gained a BA in Photography from the Leeds College of Art.

Alex now lives in London and works within an array of areas in the photographic world. The practices he is involved with include curating and hanging exhibitions, teaching photography and technical consulting on large commercial shoots. He also has his own practice which explores the connection between man and nature, specifically through the constructs we make as a civilization and natural form, looking at the relationship between the shapes, both aesthetically and philosophically, objectively and subjectively.

Having worked in such a range of faculties gives him an excellent technical background and knowledge of what is current within photography.

Among many clients Alex works closely with ThePrintSpace on most of their shows. He has also worked with The AOP for many years on their annual awards show. And recently worked with Laura Noble director of LANG on her new photo show Fix photo where he also exhibited work.

“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.” – Ansel Adams
