In 15 short months he travelled across continents in an incredibly diverse and varied trip, seeing places as distant as North Africa, the Middle East and Asia. As the trip progressed so did his passion for photography, which was paralleled with the resulting quality of his shots. He initially started out shooting landscapes and countryside, but soon developed and eye and interest for portraits.
A couple of months into the trip, Allex found himself being drawn to portrait photography. The eye contact with the camera, the ability to capture a personality and life story in a single image fascinated him,eventually developing into a passion, one he still plays with today.
