About

I don’t pretend to be an intellectual or a philosopher. I just look.
— Josef Koudelka

Alexandre Kapellos is an architect and photographer based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Born in 1969 in Basel, he has lived in the United Kingdom, Venezuela, Tunisia, Greece and the Netherlands and has travelled extensively. His passion for photography started when he received his first camera in 1984, a Canon AL-1.
