My parents met in 1963, and were married July 6, 1964. My father died June 5, 2021 at the age of 84 years. This series of photographs is of the final weeks of my father's life in hospice in May, 2021, and the end of my parents' 58-year shared journey of love and devotion.

Alexander’s approach to photography is about seeking out, discovering, and catching authentic and spontaneous moments with minimal post-editing, not creating staged scenes and visuals.
