Alex de Mora
explores his relationship to music through photography. Having been involved in London’s music scene since he was a teenager, photography, music, and photographing music have been interrelated to him. Alex’s most recently published work, a photo book titled Straight Outta Ulaanbaatar
, highlights the underground hip-hop scene prevalent in Mongolia since the mid-1990s. We speak with him about the politicization of rap after the democratic revolution, the role of music as a form of self-expression, and his experience interacting with the incredible musicians he met along his journey.
