Rogier Alexander is a Dutch fashion photographer, born in Gouda, known for his strangely good-looking imagery and flashlight-aesthetic. It is through his vivid spectrum of colors and his spacy eye for detail with which he instantly catches the viewer's attention. His images are a very explicit reaction to todays popular culture—and a personal throwback to the late 1990s and early 2000s. Think of our highly filtered beauty standards and a Nokia 3310 or something much more alienesque. The medium of photography allows Alexander to play with the idea of what we consider attractive. In addition, he visually states: "That in order to be noticed, you will always have to do something strange".

Rogier Alexander is based in Amsterdam.
