Born and raised in the Lower Mainland, Alex Waber grew up with a photographer for a dad. The still camera came into his hands at a young age, though cinema grabbed most of his attention. He studied cinematography at Capilano College, Vancouver, and worked in the industry for a few years before making the switch to still photography. Waber’s art practice is the escape from the commercial world’s quest for the “perfect” image. He tries to explore the medium from inception to presentation and the various implications it holds along the way. He has exhibited work in small galleries throughout the Lower Mainland including at the Gam Gallery, Vancouver; Untitled Art Space, Vancouver; and Seymour Art Gallery, North Vancouver. In 2011, Waber opened the Remington Studio in Vancouver and slowly expanded it to include a gallery in 2014. He is also teacher at Vancouver’s Arts Umbrella on Granville Island.
