Alex Christopher Williams explores the relationship between historical, contemporary and personal experiences around issues of race, passing, and masculinity in America. He focuses on male archetypes using folklore, legends, and icons as references to draw similarities between the past and present. As a white passing mixed race man, Williams' photographic practice centers on the liminal space between race/ethnicity and identity using a more documentary style while also attempting to actively subvert common tropes and traditions of the practice.
