Born in Great Britain, Alastair Magnaldo discovered photography at the tender age of ten. It was at that precise moment that he became fascinated with the luminous finish of black-and-white prints. Although he didn't know it at the time, he was also laying out his artistic destiny. As he matured, a new passion emerged: that of science. It was only after obtaining a PhD in physics and chemistry in France that Alastair Magnaldo returned to photography, in 2000. He then familiarised himself with photographic techniques while capitalising on the experimental and creative approach science had brought him. Since then, combining images and emotions, he has designed worlds whose poetics allow the cares of the Earth to be abated. With around one hundred works under his belt, he stands out as a singular artistic figure, juggling worlds with surprising freedom. His work has been exhibited in several international galleries and has received numerous awards, including the Prix de la Créativité 2009 from the Fédération Française de Photographie.
