Nubar Alexanian was born in 1950 in Worcester, Massachusetts. He became
passionate about photography while studying at Boston University, and
later co-founded the Essex Photographic Workshop in Essex, Massachusetts.
He has travelled and photographed extensively in Peru. His 1991 book of
photographs from Peru, Stones in the Road, has been called by Peruvian
novelist Mario Vargas Llosa, “an authentic expression of our geography
and our people, making at the same time a personal statement which is
artistically original and morally compelling.”In 1990 Alexanian started a five year project about music, travelling around the world
with twenty-five musicians, including Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis, Philip Glass, Emmylou Harris, and Phish. The resulting book, Where Music Comes From, published in 1996, captures the spirit of music, as it explores what inspires committed musicians.
In 2001, his book, Gloucester Photographs, about his home town of Gloucester
Massachusetts, was published by Walker Creek Press. The publication of this book coincided with an exhibition of this and other recent work at the Cape Ann Historical Museum in Gloucester.
His new book, JAZZ, a collaboration with Wynton Marsalis, is his first narrative attempt at using images and words and is available only online at Walker Creek Press.
Alexanian’s many awards include a Fulbright Fellowship in 1983. His
work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Life, Geo
Fortune, National Geographic, and The London Sunday Times, among other
publications around the world. He has had numerous one-person
exhibitions in the United States and Europe, and his work is in private
and museum collections internationally. He teaches workshops at the
International Center of Photography in New York, and in the Boston area.
Alexanian lives in Gloucester with his wife and daughter.
