Leon Alesi is a portrait photographer interested in exploring connection, vulnerability and intimacy with his subjects. “Personal Space” is a series in which Alesi interacts with people in their private environments. Shooting his subjects in their homes, Alesi becomes witness to the subtle ways one inhabits a space. The portraits are rich in information and narrative, each with a unique honesty. Inner details are revealed, enhanced by the intimate nature of the individual’s home and the clues within. The images act as quiet escapes, voyeuristic avenues leading to a myriad of personalities, environments, space and time. Alesi manages to unveil what is not readily available to the outside world; sometimes exposing things that even the subjects themselves are unaware of. What results is a process of discovery, shared by photographer, subject, and finally viewer.

 

The final work is presented as large-scale color photographs. The size and intimacy of the pieces allow the viewer to gaze freely and construct their own fictional account of the scene, creating one where self-discovery, perception, individuality, and connection supply the context.
