Into the Mystic with Alex Frayne
How do we see Adelaide? Are you adept at seeking out those small moments of beauty among the hum drum of every day routines. An Adelaide photographer has sought out a different view of Adelaide and is gaining quite a following. His work is described as reshaping the way South Australians see their state.

Three years ago photographer Alex Frayne set about reframing the Adelaide we take for granted. Then Adelaide Noir was born.

From a series of images this moved on from the cult shadows to bright places in homes and galleries. Now the photographs are seen daily by a growing number of devotees. He also has an upcoming book being published by Wakefield Press entitled Adelaide Noir. Further information can be found on his Facebook site here

Alex's images of factories, streetscapes, playgrounds and shopping centres give voice to his darker vision, seeking beauty in the mundane, and art wherever it may be found. There is something very evocative and almost mystical in many of the images.
Photography exhibitions are notorious for not selling well. Alex Frayne seems certain to change this perception with his new book. Greg Mackie, OAM gives this photographer a glowing recommendation. 'Alex Frayne's work is at once haunting and beautiful. His cinematic eye brings a Kubrick-ian perfection and symmetry to the suburban landscape and he totally revamps our memories of time and place. Adelaide has never looked so luminous.'

Adelaide has seldom soared into the realms of beauty so gloriously, as it does in these captivating images. Adelaide Noir is available via Wakefield Press and all good book stores from November 2014.
