About

 

Raised on the Channel Island of Jersey, London-based artist Alexander Mourant (b. 1994, UK) is
drawn to the friction between interior and exterior worlds, as well as photography’s power to
represent existential ideas. For his recent Aomori series, Mourant captured the blue depths of Japan’s
ancestral forests with a lens filter developed specifically for the project.
