Alex Guiry is a travel and lifestyle photographer who's been studying at Emily Carr in Vancouver for the last few years while traveling to distant surf destinations on the side. "My work is based around the lifestyle of surfing," he says, "as well as the byproducts of traveling with a surfboard. I play on the harsh realities and the enlightening ones—in a way, I like to think I'm an artist-as-ethnographer."
Alex is headed off to Mexico and Central America next month, so we're looking forward to seeing more of his work here at SBC. There's currently an exhibition of his work up at the Sitka store in Victoria, and you can see a ton more from him at his website here or his Facebook page here.
