Swans in Kingston-upon-Thames

Alexander Beer

Swans by the bridge in the ancient market town of Kingston-Upon-Thames (near London) where Saxon kings were crowned. Swans are native to the United Kingdom and according to the official Royal Family website, the Crown has held the right to claim ownership of unmarked mute swans across the country since the 12th century.
This photograph was taken in the summer of 2020 as the cygnets were changing into swans.
Shot on film on Pentax 67

Alexander Beer is an award-winning portrait and documentary photographer and director based in London, UK. He uses both analogue and digital technique.

Moving between personal projects and commercial work. Alexander has produced a complex body of photographic and video work, offering a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture.

His work has taken him all over the world to some remote areas as well as densely populated towns and cities plus some pretty precarious environments – all for the love of creating interesting photo stories.

His main objective is to create photographic narratives of people set against backgrounds in locations all over the world, bringing each image to life by capturing moments in time with a cinematic and romantic feel.

Growing up in south east Asia and Saudi Arabia before moving back to London in his teens, influenced Alex’s fascination with people, cultures, religions and diversity and this is expressed in his work.
