BIOGRAPHY Alexandra Hedison (USA b. 1969) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Committed to the decisiveness and precision of working with large and medium format cameras, Hedison addresses the interstices between tradition and novelty by exploring the transitions between the two. Each of her photographs are a direct encounter between the individual and the immensity of the landscape, both architectural and natural. She often focuses on synthetic veils in ordinary environments, identifying a conceptual space between places. A geometry emerges and creates an architectural composition irrespective of context, linking her work to a medium-specific modernity that bolsters the strength of her observations of contemporary life.
