Major project:

Lost in My Mind (2019)

Lost in My Mind (2019) explores the internal relationship between the mental landscape and the body’s experiences through the use of photographic weave. In these works, he invites the viewer to explore and lose themselves to the visual density contained in these large woven works. Through the process of destruction and recombination, they explore the relationship between photography and the weave, and new images created from the redaction of the original photographs.


  • Alex Nguyen is a photographer and paper artist from the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated form San Jose State University with a BA in Photography and a minor in Anthropology in 2013. His current practice explores the weave and its relationship with the photographic print, information and personal exploration.
