Alex Wall is a weird kid. His hometown is the Gold Coast, Australia but he was actually born in Monterey, California. Now he kicks it in Brooklyn. I met him through mutual friends. I liked that he was kinda awkward, and that he constantly posts selfies on Instagram when he's not really 'that' kind of person. I'm a luddite and not super good with technology. Alex is pretty good at that stuff so I started giving him twenty bucks here and there to make PDFs and fix things for me. That's when I saw his photos. I thought they were pretty cool. I like that looking at his photos, you can pick what kinda person he is. Here are some favorite photos of his and his thoughts on taking photos.
What year were you born?
1989. So I'm 24.
When you were at high school were they still teaching film or had they moved on to digital?
They didn't even have photography at my school. But when I went to uni, they were only teaching digital.
How'd you get hold of your first camera?
My dad gave me his old Minolta SLR that he took around the world when he was traveling. It was pretty cool.
