Alvelyn Alko grew up skateboarding, painting, and taking photos.
Documenting the world around her, she relies deeply on her intuition to construct an idea, a feeling, a fantasy, a spontaneous moment.
Alvelyn Alko’s work is raw, exuberant, honest and emotional. She directs her lenses sensitively to capture fleeting moments suffused with passion and beauty, her unobtrusive observational style weaving a sense of intimacy in her images, drawing the audience irresistibly towards the subject.
At the age of 23 Alvelyn shot her first regional campaign for Adidas and now regularly shoots ad campaigns and editorials for magazinces including Marie Claire, Her World, Style Wedding, Female, Cleo and Esquire. Recent clients also include Singtel and Ministry of Manpower.
Her first book of collected works “NEHAO NEHAO” was published in 2011. To tap into Alvelyn Alko’s stream of consciousness, visit: http://salon.io/alvelynalko or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
