Alex Stoddard is a photographer living in Los Angeles, California. He was born in 1993 and raised in rural Georgia. Inspired by his surroundings and isolation as a teen, he began taking self-portraits in the woods behind his family home. Photography became a means of escape, allowing him to construct elaborate scenes and step into the role of different characters through costumes and posing. 

Stoddard's work is highly influenced by art history in the digital age. He explores concepts of fantasy and surrealism within portraiture, as well as the human form and its connection to nature. He is entirely self-taught and relies on his eye and natural instinct when creating. His style is characterized by simple compositions that frame more meaningful, universal themes.
