Passionate photographer, Alexandra Leroux has been practicing this activity for fifteen years.
She does it first as a hobby. Photography is an opportunity for her to take a break from a very rhythmic life.
Thanks to her lens, she casts her gaze and marvels at the details present in nature, monuments, objects.
In 2011, she enrolled in the Agnès Varda photography school. She carries out various projects: portrait photography, fashion, reportage.
She understands that the image must represent an offbeat moment, a fragility, the expression of an emotion.
She also attaches importance to the human dimension in the realization of a project. Meet the subject photographed, listen to their story, develop a relationship of trust and transpose the sensitivity of the subject to the image.
in 2018, she began classes at the School of Arts in Ixelles. She is interested in and deepens the artistic dimension associated with the image.
She leaves more room for imagination and creativity in the realization of her projects. It moves away from the objective representation of reality. She tries to see otherwise. According to her, the image must disturb, astonish, raise questions.
