I am André Alessio and I’m a 48-year-old photographer from France. I was born and I live in Montpellier, a town in the south part of the country. I received my first photo camera when I was 13 years old and I am autodidact.

Since that time, I have photographed landscapes and portraits, combining photography with my great passion for traveling to many different countries around the world. I tend to avoid crowded places and popular routes. I’d rather take my time and start up chatting with local people.

“Série Noire” is a portfolio in black and white from a series of portraits shot during my travels.
