Coal Photography first came to my attention just after he was up in Kugluktuk taking photos with Dave Brosha. Since then I have been glued to the photos the man behind the name, Alexander Legaree, has produced. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to get him on the line and talk about his photography.
Alexander calls the NWT home and has for many years, but not only that, he calls it his inspiration for photography. Ever since the age of 4, Alexander his been into photography, but it really became a passion when he was living in Sweden in 2003. He says “I haven’t looked back since” and his photos show that. Alexander also shares with me he favourite genre of photography, who inspires him and what he is up to next, all in the show.
Don’t forget if you know someone doing something interesting (or another photographer or yourself) send me their info, I want to talk to them!
