Alex Sanderson specialises in automotive photography, specifically from Goodwood Motor Circuit which is local to both Alex and Forest Gallery.
Alex has been taking photographs for nearly forty years, having started as a teenager with a Pentax K1000. Today he uses a Nikon D700 and Leica-M for the majority of his work.
Whilst the focus of his photography has principally been automotive, Alex’s portfolio has also extended into landscape, travel and flora photography to a lesser extent. Alex has lived extensively overseas which has helped shape his perspective on the world and subsequently his approach to photography.
Alex Sanderson has a passion for motorsports which has driven his interest in automotive photography. In the 1980’s this manifested itself in photographing motor rallying in Kielder and the English/Scottish borders. Over the last twenty years this has developed to encompass photographing classic and vintage cars, much based around the motor events at Goodwood.
Aside from the traditional journalistic style of photographing cars, Alex has sought to develop a more abstract style based principally around the use of light and colour to highlight their design shape and form. From this was born this striking series of images named ‘The Art of the Car’.
Alex is a member of the Independent Goodwood Photographers Guild and Forest Gallery are pleased to present this exclusive new collection for 2020.
