Alex Crétey Systermans

A Paris based photographer, Alex’s work explores humanity and reality through documenting the world around him.

A former landscape painter, he grew up by the sea, which instilled in him a love of light, mood and atmosphere. Preferably shooting on film and using natural daylight when possible, he observes real moments of everyday life with beauty and sensitivity.

Alex shoots lifestyle and travel photojournalism, as well as pursuing personal projects for publication. His images can be found as part of international collections and are exhibited worldwide.
