About Alexandra Rowley was born and raised in New York City. She honed in on her interest in art and photography very early, and spent long hours in the darkroom at The Chapin School, before continuing on at Kenyon College, where she majored in studio art and art history. Her study of the medium deepened during her time at Speos Ecole de la Photography in Paris, where her work was received well and published published in VU magazine, solidifying her career choice before age 20. Since then , Alexandra has moved fluidly between the commercial and art worlds, having exhibited her work internationally. Solo shows at Dina Mitrani Gallery in Miami, Geukens and de Vil in Belgium and Speos Galerie in Paris. Other galleries that have shown her work include Rose Gallery in Santa Monica and Caren Golden, Massimo Audiello, Brian Clamp and Jay Grimm in New York. Alexandra has had fellowships at the UCross Foundation, The Atlantic Center of the Arts, and her work is represented by Dina Mitrani Gallery in Miami. Alexandra brings a deep understanding of art and media history to her commercial work. No matter what the subject, her images resonate with a strong sense of humanity. It's the people - often unseen - who drive the work. Commercial clients often bring her in during the initial phase of a project and value her input in helping to shape the concept. Her interest in process and materials is evident in her award winning campaign for Levi's Strauss & Co, which she shot with Wieden + Kennedy, and which had been inspired by a project she exhibited in both Miami and Paris. Likewise, her work for commercial clients as disparate as Tate's Bake Shop and Waterworks takes an interest in process, and breaks down the components of each product to consider the quality behind the craft. Above all, her life is shaped by gratitude. Gratitude for Mr. Neil her childhood art teacher, for the ability to pursue work which she loves and for being able to use her gifts in the service of her values. Alexandra has served on the board of The Humane Society of New York since 2004.
