Alexandra is a fantastic young photographer and insightful artblogger. Originally from Washington, DC, Alexandra returned back to the city a week after graduating from college. Last year, she received a Young Artist Project Grant from the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities to photograph in public parks throughout DC. Her in-depth look at DC parks culminated in a fantastic solo show in 2005 (read my review here). I'm proud to say that I own two works from that show (see the two individual images in the review).
Alexandra has participated in two projects at Thinking About Art. Read her One Word Project entry here (her writing and image is included in the OWP book) and her Artists Interview Artists Project entry here.
When reviewing Alexandra's work for the bARTer exchange I was immediately struck by this image (high res version available if you'd like to see it). It's a striking view of the glass pyramids at the Louvre in Paris. It works on so many different levels that I knew it was the one.
If you would like to bARTer for Alexandra's photograph*, please let me know via comment or email.
* Although the offer is extended now, I will have to wait until Alexandra returns from her trip to France to take possession of her photograph. However, I know she's good for it so we can move forward with the project.
