Born in Zambia to Congolese parents, Alexis has lived in several countries, both African and European. His passion for creativity started with comic books, more specifically, Stan Lee’s Marvel stories and characters. But when he discovered photography’s instantaneity, he “was sold”, as he puts it. From there, he’s kept taking pictures from friends, relatives and, lately, singers. Today, we speak with him about the importance of music, discovering one’s identity, finding one’s voice, and he tells us all about shooting Bill Withers – a camera broke, a phone died, and he got stuck in the freeway.
