Alex Krowiak is a San Diego-based photographer working to tell stories about people, nature, and the changing relationship between the two.

In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

Like in nature, humans are never the center of any story. Other creatures – bigger, smaller, slower, faster, older, younger, more powerful- call the shots, make the air, and eat sunlight. Without them, nothing. This is what I work to create visually.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

To be aware of our place and of our radical interdependence.
