Alex Fakso started as a graffiti and skateboard photographer in the early ‘90s in Italy. His intrinsic aim is to produce compelling and dramatic images where the silent protagonists are graffiti writers juxtaposed to train depots and underground tunnels sceneries. His books “Heavy Metal” and “Fast or Die” dive deep into these alien landscapes capturing with raw authenticity the vivid atmospheres of a parallel world that breathes through the darkest bends of our cities. In recent years his work began destroying the aesthetics and meaning of images thank to the use of waste objects focusing on transforming photographs into rare and unthinkable artworks.
