“There are all these people here I don't know by sight or by name. And we pass alongside each other and don't have any connection. And they don't know me and I don't know them. And now I'm leaving town and there are all these people I will never know.” - Carson McCullers
These photographs began during a period of transition as Knudsen moved from northeastern Massachusetts to New York City. The highway became his refuge as he traveled between his home and this new uncharted territory, often escaping one for the other. With this body of work he stitches a narrative of landscapes, people, and their markings to explore notions of isolation, rapture, and the longing for connection.
Alex Knudsen is a photographer working in Massachusetts. In 2014 he graduated with a BFA in photography from MassArt. His photographs and books have appeared in various exhibitions and publications in the US and Europe.
