My name is Alexa Moon. I am a fine art photographer with Russian roots. Now I am living and creating in the small city Neumuesnter in North Germany. My photography journey began at the age of 19. That was the time when my family passed away and I realized in that moment that life is too short to do things that you don’t love. So I quit my university in Russia where I was studying political science before which I didn’t enjoy and came to Europe to follow this new philosophy and study art.
Art helped me a lot to heal my inner wounds from the past and made me a better person. In my photography I raise topics that are important to me. I talk with the viewer about fear, loneliness, negativity, love, etc. And it helps me to improve myself. It is the best psychologist there is.
I do mainly self portraits, because with me being a model and a photographer I can achieve a better result. Before I take a picture I have a concept in my head already. I ‘see’ the poses and expressions. So when I start modeling I know how the final picture should look like.
I get inspired from the nature and the world around us. My best ideas came to me while walking in the mountains or sitting next to a beautiful lake.
My work has been previously exhibited in the galleries in London, New York, Berlin, Rotterdam, Athens and Hamburg.
Nothing is eternal. With this photo I want to remind to the viewer that nothing is eternal, nothing is going to last forever. Everything is going to come to an end. All we have is the present moment. That is why it is so important to embrace it and enjoy it. Because who knows how long it is going to last.
'Don't die with your music still inside of you' is one of my favourite quotes of Wayne Dyer. I see it is a reminder to us to do things in life that really matter. To follow your passion. To never give up. To accomplish your dreams. So that laying on the death bed we will have no regrets.
Fear. I made this artwork as a reminder about a period of life that I had. I have experienced fear on the daily basis. And that stopped me from having a normal life. Fear was chocking me and wasn't allowing me to breath. I was screaming inside, but no one was understanding me. Even I couldn't understand myself any more. And that was the worse part of this whole situation.
The World Creator. And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
Release your fear. 'I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.'
