John Alexander is a fine-art photographer known for composing abstract patterns from distressed surfaces encountered on his travels. 

“There is something really interesting about how a surface reacts to environmental conditions over its lifetime. Whether it has been influenced by human activity or has occurred naturally, my subject will always have its own complex history. Part of the fun is that the stories of how the textures evolved are mostly unknown. We can use our imaginations to conjure our own meaning behind the specific colours, shapes, lines and cracks within the photograph. I’m always interested to hear what people see in the images, as everyone sees something different”.

“Producing my textures is more photographically challenging than you might think! It is not just a case of seeing a wall and then photographing it. I adopt many photographic techniques to ensure that my subject possesses the incredible detail and sharpness that makes the print so unique, even when printed a metre wide”.
