About the Artist
Alex Sinclair grew up in the local Dublin/Wicklow punk scene where he learned a DIY-ethos which he has retained to this day. He graduated with a B.A. in Photography from Dublin Institute of Technology, specialising his final year in fictional narrative construction in news media while writing his thesis on Stephen Shore’s seminal photobook American Surfaces. During college, he started DigitalFaun, an award-winning image-media criticism blog that amassed 27,000 subscribers before wrapping up in 2015. Working briefly as a sportswriter, Sinclair had his work featured by Sports Illustrated, Pro Football Focus, SB Nation, and Daily Sports Car. In his spare time, Sinclair alternates between learning Japanese and playing chess.
