Random Beautiful Things by Alex Covo

My name is Alex. This blog showcases my photography. I'm a New York City based photographer and motion artist.
I love to shoot random beautiful things juxtaposed against the grit, texture and beautiful decay of the world around me.
I love shooting black and white photos, but I'll still shoot color when it suits me :)
I hope to inspire others one day just like those that inspire me today! xx

PS. All the pics and videos on this site were shot by me, unless stated otherwise. Please feel free to reblog!

Be joyful and fearless in the pursuit of what you love. Thank you Leigh Rose you are an amazing talent! #portrait #blackandwhite #fearless #artiststudionyc #photography #photograhyislife #phototag_it #art #bestportraits #beautiful

Another place. Another time. The stillness of the cold winter day still lingers in my thoughts. Forever etched in my imagination.

A moment when nothing else matters. A moment in time.

Light Painting by Alex Covo

“Ah, lust. It makes us forget anything we want to. The greatest relaxant, the greatest stimulant.” 
― James Lusarde

Light is the brush I will paint with, revealing beauty on this canvas of darkness.

"We see light, but it is the dark that opens our eyes"

Communion. The promise of salvation that never came. Just lingering memories of people sticking their tongue out.
