Avye Alexandres is a photographer and videographer specializing in conceptual, editorial, portrait, and documentary shoots. Her photojournalistic work follows politically motivated actions, and her personal works investigate place and inhabitation. On commercial assignments her spare, evocative style lends itself to intimate portraits, bold or minimalist concept projects, and dynamic event documentation. For her multimedia art practice, please visit avye.art
She is available for collaborations worldwide.
A graduate of the MFA program in Art and Emerging Practices at the University at Buffalo, she has exhibited nationally and received several awards and fellowships, including the 2016 Oseroff Memorial Photography Purchase Prize from CEPA Gallery and the Roswell Park Cancer Institute / Roswell Park Alliance Art Committee.
Avye ( pronounced: ahv-Y) was born in Athens, Greece, so technically her name should be spelled Avgi. But that would have been significantly more complicated to explain to adults in the U.S. when she arrived at the age of six.
She has lived in the south, midwest, and northeast USA and loves to travel. She now resides in Buffalo, NY amidst 47+ houseplants.
