Grids - Photography by Alex Hauptman

Image of exhibit

Human activity and interaction are depicted in these moments where there is a confluence of visual pattern and social underpinning.

Photography has been my avocation for over 50 years. I aim to have my photographs tell a story to reveal something of the inner life of the people photographed, and I hope to evoke imagination and introspection.

Photography, for me, is both intuitive and deliberative. One must often work faster than one can think, and this reveals the role of unconscious process and working habit that lead to pressing the shutter at a critical moment of visual and thematic confluence.

I am a retired physician and have lived in the Rockridge District for almost 40 years. Further examples of my work can be found at the  website
