Alex Currie is a 17 year old photographer and filmmaker from Buffalo, New York. His photographs focus on conveying a story in a single frame and evoking a strong emotional connection with the viewer. Throughout his short tenure as a photographer and videotographer, he has accomplished what many spend their entire lives trying to do.
He has been recognized by publications such as Photo Vogue, Photofocus, Lens People, Rewind Magazine, 2VIDA Magazine, and Awake Platform. Furthermore, Alex has received countless awards for both his videotography and his camera work. Some of these include First Place in Short Film at the National Fine Arts Festival (both 2013 and 2014), First Place at the Mata Exhibition (2014), the NeXt Vision Award for Excellence from Kenan/Storrs All High, and First Place in the Villa Maria High School Photo Show (2014)
Recently, Alex was selected as Flickr's 20 Under 20 photographers, along with Issue 1 cover artist Oliver Charles and Issue 1 contributor Katharina Jung. Among this group of highly talented and unique individuals, Alex received the Most Creative award.
Alex spends most of his time behind a camera, and on any given day you’ll probably find him in a classroom or sitting barefoot in the middle of the woods with a tripod and remote. After what he's shown us so far, we can't want to see where he goes next.
