The photographer Alex Wein captures the invisible line between surrealism and reality.
Alex Wein is a North American photographer with a style that lies between reality and surrealism. Wein began taking pictures thanks to his love for skateboarding and capturing his travels with his board. His images show a willingness to reflect reality without many frills, almost with the same free nature of skateboarding, full of quiet moments and mundane situations that hide beauty and echoes of surrealism.
Better known for his Headstand series, where he has photographed himself in atypical tourist photos, Wein's portfolio captures a wide range of subjects and situations. His images of life on the road or his shots of his fellow skateboarding friends reveal a love and respect that is hard to find reflected with such spontaneity and liberty.
