Alex Saberi is a photographer who lives in Putney and his forthcoming solo exhibition ‘Park life’ is an amazing array of image of our neighbours living in Richmond Park.

Alex rose every day before dawn for a year has unlocked the secret world of London's majestic wildlife. The stunning scenes, which occur right under the noses of the eight million people living in the capital, were captured on camera in a series of incredible pictures. The photos are taken at dawn at Richmond Park and include the fairytale scenes of rutting stags and swans swimming through the eerie dawn mist.







Alex told
I remember Richmond park from when I was a child. My mum and friends parents used to take us there to have picnics and play. I moved very close to the park in Roehampton and had just taken up photography as a hobby. The first autumn I was there early in the morning just blew me away. I loved the fact that I was one of the only people up to see nature at its best. With the mists and the amazing light over the lakes in in the forests, and added to that majestic stags and swans. It wasn't that hard getting up early when I knew I could look out of my window and see the conditions were right. I would just cycle in the park and never knew what I was going to get."

Alex Saberi started taking photos in 2005 after buying his first Canon camera. Most recently he has appeared much of the national press including Daily Mail, Metro, Evening Standard, The Times, The Sun, The Telegraph with his year in Richmond Park collection. His incredible photographs of urban wildlife have been published on book covers, many digital camera magazines and publications.

Alex has won several photography competitions including Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2008 Earth Day Nature and Wildlife With Realm Of The Deer award among other numerous wildlife photography awards. He came second in Landscape photographer of the year with his photo "One man and his Dog".
