Alex Sheyn

Alex Sheyn started playing around with photography at a young age, frequently designated official photographer on family trips using his dad’s old camera gear. Having grown up in a family of architects, artists and musicians, their creative influences inspired his own career path, leading him to a degree in Art and Design and launching his exploration in the fields of design and photography. For his city and street photography, Alex strives to find ways to show urban environments in ways that elicit unexpected emotion, sometimes through his editing or unexpected angles and vantage points, and oftentimes a combination of both.

Alex’s go-to cameras are his Canon 6D, or his Sony a6000 when the Canon feels too cumbersome. While he admits to falling in love with some photos from his iPhone, he typically prefers the editing power of a traditional setup. When editing, he loves to work from scratch, appreciating the power of RAW format and fine-tuning until satisfied. He notes, however, that choosing the right filter can be as artistic as editing from scratch and may be the right path to get the desired effect. In addition to his photography, Alex is a Senior Art Director at Odopod, a digital design agency in San Francisco. His work is published in Trope Chicago, the first in the Trope City Editions series, a collection of urban and architectural photography books of cities around the world by today’s emerging photographers.

Alex's Prints

“​I am very influenced by work that seems somehow impossible. In illustration, it could be a level of detail that seems impossibly tedious but wholly worth it. In photography, a photo taken at the perfect place and time while also being beautifully composed. In design, a perfect blend of visual appeal and message, neither being compromised by the other, but instead complemented."
