“Life Through My Lens”
Through December 29, 2014
Alessandria came to photography by a unique and interesting path. An entertainment attorney in Los Angeles for nearly twenty years, he lost his business as a result of the 2008 financial crisis. He made the decision to amplify his love of photography and turn it into a profession. He first picked up a camera in 2004 and was suddenly captivated. In the next two years, he amassed over 200,000 shots. “If it took a global financial meltdown and mid-life crisis to get here, I’m all for it” he states.
Alessandria has gone on to exhibiting his stunning photographs in multiple venues including both solo and group shows and winning awards for his work, most notably First Place Award of Excellence , M-SHAC and Alfa Art Gallery.
In discussing his passion for photographing, Alessandria says “I make my art first by capturing a photo with my camera and then completing the process with the tools of digital creation. Each of my images speaks to me in a unique and powerful way. By creating art, I experience greater truth and sharper insight.” He further asserts “I am innately drawn to beauty. I seek out beauty in all the scenes I photograph. I believe in the power of beauty to uplift and transform the viewer through experience.”
