Photographer #224: Alex Fradkin

Alex Fradkin, 1966, USA, originally studied and practiced architecture. It is no surprise that when he started his photographic career in 1996, he focused on architecture and landscapes. In 2011 two books will be released by Alex. One of the projects is Bunkers: Ruins of War in a New American Landscape. It contains images of whole or partially intact bunkers found across the San Francisco Bay Area. The serenity of the landscape is broken apart by the process of erosion and seismic activity that is gradually ripping the hillsides apart. The other project is The Left Coast: California on the Edge. Since 2006 Fradkin has documented the changing Californian coastline and it's people with a large format camera. Following images come from the series The Left Coast: California on the Edge, Bunkers: Ruins of War in a New American Landscape and The Lakeshore Project.
