Born and raised in New York City, Alexandra Rowley is an award-winning photographer and artist whose work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group shows at galleries as well as art foundations.

Whether shooting her personal artwork, the portrait of a celebrated visionary, an interior for an editorial client, or product for a consumer brand, Alexandra brings a powerful, sophisticated sense of humanity to her images. Her photographs tell engaging stories—of people, of places, of things—with nuance and lyricism. She possesses an unrelenting curiosity and has a deep respect for creative work and process, all of which is reflected in the images she makes. For high-level commercial collaborations, she brings a thoughtful approach and unique perspective to every project, assembling teams of top creatives to envision and execute concept with both intellect and skill.
Deeply knowledgeable about both the history and technical aspects of photography, she has taught at the International School of Photography (including a course on personal vision this fall). She is a member of the Female Design Council, has served on the board of the Humane Society of New York since 2004, and she joined the NY Advisory Council of the National Democratic Institute in 2017. Alexandra lives with her husband, writer and editor Stephen Wallis, and their son in New York City.
