Alex Casares, Photographer
My camera is my time machine, my paint and brush with which I can create a glimpse into the
past for future generations to ponder. My subject matter is life and my passion is to freeze
those special moments for all to enjoy.
From the time I first picked up a camera I was addicted to the ability to create photographic
stories of people and events I come across throughout my day.
My chosen genre in photography is Street Photography and Documentary Photography; though
I personally feel they are one in the same. I love documenting my life experiences with my
camera (a day with my family, a walk with my wife, a stroll down a busy street, a day at
work, a parade or festival) no matter what the day has in store I want to capture that
moment in time with an artistic style and create a photograph I can be proud of.
Photographers who I admire and have inspired me- Robert Frank, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry
Winogrand, Vivian Maier, and Robert Capa are just a few of my favorites.
I am a self-taught photographer and have been developing my skills with digital and analog
photography for several years.
I have shot freelance and have been published several times in our small town newspaper The
San Manuel Miner.
In addition to street photography I also shoot portraits, pet photography and special events.
I am currently working on three personal projects.
Beautiful People – This is a series of street portraits of random people I find have a unique
look and style to them. My goal is to show how beautiful and special all human beings are
regardless of class and stature. This project is on-going.
People Loving The Arts - This is a series of candid street style photos captured of people
enjoying a variety of art exhibits. My goal is to capture the emotion and wonder within people
as they are mesmerized with all the wonderful works of art within their grasp. This project is
Pinal County Public Works - This is a series of photos documenting my career with Pinal
County. My goal with this project is to capture some of my experiences throughout my years
of service with the many different people and projects within Pinal County Public Works. This
will allow future generations an opportunity to view through my photos the many changes
that occurred within Pinal County Public Works during my career. This project will be on-
going throughout my career.
