I have always been amazed by the beauty of life, and this is probably why I chose to study and then teach biology.
Learn and transmit.
I believe that if we open our eyes and mind, we will see the beautiful things and the beautiful people that surround us.
My photography has no other pretension than being the translation of my feelings ; my camera is playing the role of my third eye or 6th sense, in that it mostly understands and deciphers what I have in mind , and it is a valuable path for my emotions while capturing the light, the essence of photography.
If you managed to read until this point of my speech, I’d like to add that I learned a lot through Flickr’s amazing pool of talent, of which you are a part. I am still learning new techniques and new paths that help me bring out emotions and I hope that I sometimes succeed in delivering them to you.
Last but not least, thank you to all the friends I have made here for several years now, who keep having a look at my work and offering kind words.
Welcome in my World

"When thinking about your photography I come to a hurdle: It is the moment. Actually, there is no moment at all; it's a phantom, which was invented by the people to give time a special measure: the shortest conceivable part that we are aware of just yet, the first reflection of eternity in time, its first attempt.
But the idea with its suddenness and sharpness it can take as little as to the language with their linear progress. For always the moment is already passed, if you want to get hold of it you will immediately find yourself already in the next one. Moments can be remembered in the best case, but it will then go another, transformed, mutilated, incomplete, lost in the distance because some elements and the contours are blurred.
Your photography is making a light that could never be experienced before. Your Photography is a wonderful moment. As such, it brings a little movement in our picture of the world, and the photographic pose of contemplation seems to us as a particle of past life.
Thanks for sharing your work with us.

"the first time i came across Alex's "pebbles", i was hooked. how could i not? i have never seen anyone capture pebbles and make them look ethereal. of course, that was only the start. his "pencils stories" set is one i would go back to every now and again. and lately his magical, bokehlicious images which have graced Flickr's Explore page have me feeling a sense of regret that i have not had the chance to visit his stream as often as i can these last few months. but i take comfort in the thought that i can always come back to his stream when i need a jolt of magic and inspiration. and for that i am most grateful to you, Alex. thank you for unselfishly sharing the beauty of even the simplest of things as seen through your eyes.

"So much has been written already about Alex and I fear I am late to the party.
It is true that he is a remarkably talented artist. A master of technique and color, he simply does things with a camera that I am not capable of doing. I look at his work everyday and I am never disappointed, often saying under my breath "I wish I had taken that!".
Aside from being the stellar photographer that you see here, he is also a good friend. Always encouraging me and making the time to look at my simple little images. He has certainly made me a better photographer.
Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine (you might need a bottle), cozy up to your computer screen and treat yourself to a few hours browsing through his stream. You can thank me later."

Può a perfezione diventare commovente? Si, quando si ha un dominio così prodigioso della tecnica, e, nel contempo, un linguaggio emozionale così profondo come quello d' Alex. Della fotografia d'Alex lo ammiro tutto: la purezza e l'austerità, l'eleganza (straordinaria) e la poesia, la ragione ed il sentimento... insomma, ammiro la felice malinconia della fotografia d'Alex: la sua sottile ed ineguagliabile miscela fra la "joie de vivre" e la consapevolezza della propria fragilità... della fragilità di tutti noi. La fotografia d'Alex è un canto alla vita, con tutta la sua grandezza operistica e tutta la sua raccolta intimità. Grazie per la bellezza che ci regali, caro amico!"

"Luce intensa, colori vividi. Suggestioni, immagini che, pur se cristallizzate nel tempo, paiono palpitare di vita e movimento. Ti attendi che all'improvviso si animimo ed escano dalla pagina."

"Alex (Alexandre) es uno de los mejores fotógrafos que se mueven por Flickr.
Sus temáticas fuertemente místicas y casi espirituales se impregnan de una belleza sutil, delicada y poética.
El tratamiento que hace de cada una de sus fotos es singular y lleva el sello personalísimo de su autor.
Me siento feliz por tenerlo como contacto y amigo. Siempre me enriquezco cuando entro en su galería."

"I run out of superlatives to describe Alex's creativity. He constantly bobs and weaves, infact dances, through the most technically challenging of shots with effortless grace.
Each work posted has me shaking my head in wonder..........extreme talent in action. I adore him. He is also VERY easy on the eye XXX"

"On voit et l'on sent le sud dans tous les clichés de ce fantastique photographe. J'aime la façon qu'Alex raconte ses histoires en images. Ici, les couleurs sont toujours magnifiques et chaudes, un vrai coup de coeur quotidien pour la nordique que je suis. Ton stream est une belle découverte Alex, merci de faire partie de mon décor Flickérien :) Marie xox"

""Scenes from Heaven" I would say about Alex's photographs! They are absolutely unique and beautiful in a way that makes me wonder if he really lives in our regular world. Photos rich in colors, meanings, and beauty! I can't wait to see his new upload for which it makes me have more faith in the world and its beauty. He's a real artist, one of the best photographers, and I'm proud to be one of his contacts! :)"

"Quello che mi piace delle fotografie di Alex è "l'attenzione". In ogni suo scatto si distingue la caratteristica dell'occhio attento al particolare, alla scelta attenta dell'inquadratura, all'attenta ricerca del tono giusto del colore, all'eleganza attenta a non sfociare nella leziosità. Le sue foto stimolano l'attenzione di chi le guarda, rammentandogli che la bellezza sta nella semplicità, attenta a mai cadere nel banale, e che
dietro ad ognuna di esse, c'è un'importante storia, un meraviglioso racconto, un fantastico sogno che si rivive ogni qualvolta le osserviamo, attentamente, con gli occhi e trovano il loro posto nel nostro cuore. Un sentito grazie, Alex, per le tue foto e per la tua amicizia."

"Alex is an amazing photographer, he delights my eyes with amazing colours, different ways of viewing arts and cats, and he takes me to beautiful cities and villages with its great colours!
He is a gentleman, a very valuable flickr friend and I never know what he´ll bring next, I just know it will be technically well done and with great humanity.
Keep bringing us your vision my friend, it´s a pleasure to the eyes and the soul.

"un fotografo,un'artista che vede la fotografia come un modo di vivere e come un amore astratto verso il raccontare agli altri quello che i suoi occhi vedono.Una persona gentile e cortese nei suoi commenti,una fortuna averlo come insegnante ma specialmente(almeno per me)averlo come contatto.............."
