Alex Frayne

Adelaide Noir
Three years ago photographer Alex Frayne set about reshaping the way South Australians see their state. Adelaide Noir was born.

The series moved quickly from the cult shadows to bright places in homes and galleries. Now the photographs are seen daily by a growing legion of fans. Alex's images of factories, playgrounds and shopping centres give voice to his darkly comic vision, seeking beauty in the mundane, and art wherever it may be found.

Praise for Adelaide Noir:
'Alex Frayne's work is at once haunting and beautiful. His cinematic eye brings a Kubrick-ian perfection and symmetry to the suburban landscape and he totally revamps our memories of time and place. Adelaide has never looked so luminous.' - Greg Mackie, OAM

Alex Frayne has been involved in film and images from his earliest school days. Beginning with an 8 mm camera in hand he has continued his love affair with the medium through school and then at Flinders University where he completed a Bachelor of Arts. He has made short films, a feature film (Modern Love) and more recently his still photography work has earned acclaim, most notably the Adelaide Noir series and book. Images from this body of work are held in collections in Australia and overseas. He lives in Adelaide and is represented in America by Michael Ash Partners, New York.
