Alex Cockwill is a photographer based outside of London in Surrey. He began taking photos seriously 3 years ago, describing the journey into his art as a meandering path that began with simple holiday snaps, then expanded to outdoor landscapes and city shots, and evolved to his current mix of street and architecture scenes. He feels most at home shooting in urban environments, where there is a contrasting mix of contemporary and brutalist architecture.

A recent graduate in mechanical engineering, Alex’s work reflects a passion for technology and intuitive design through his use of bold contrasts, dynamic colors, and geometry. His focus on urban photography took shape during his first year of university during trips to London with his camera and became inspired by the city’s contrasting architecture, vibrant culture and iconic transport system. Alex has gained global recognition with his London work, being recently published by Trope in their Trope London book (the second volume in the Trope City Editions series) and by MENDO in their Streets of London book.
“Recently, I’ve been asking myself ‘what does this evoke to me?’. I believe not every photo has to have a deep story to it...it is more about the emotions experienced when pressing the shutter button that define whether a shot is impactful to me or not.”
