Alexander Binder was born on Halloween night 1976 in the Black Forest/Germany.
He’s a totally self taught photographer, having never attended a photo class in his life. Even his lenses are mostly self built from optical toys, old soviet cameras, prisms or plastic crap. A fan of Hans Bellmer and Herbert List, Alexander creates mystical and ethereal photos which are characterized by a strong passion for the spiritual, the surreal and the occult.
Alexander’s photos have been exhibited internationally, most notably at festivals like Voies-Off/Les Rencontres d’Arles and PhotoIreland. The images were published in Vice, Twin, GUP, Juke, Fotografia, Süddeutsche Magazin and they were featured on NewYorker.com and DazedDigital.
His books and zines are held in the collections of the National Art Library, Deutsche Nationalbibliothek and the Salford Zine Library.
