I've published my NOCTURNA book.

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” - Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven

The most dangerous demons humans ever face are their own fears and disillusions. That is the moment when we find both the best and the worst about us. At times we become so estranged from our own thoughts, feelings and emotions, that finding ourselves uncovered, naked, means we can no longer hide this alienated nature of ours. 

Within a period of four months, the photographic artist lost his job and separated from my wife. It all happened amidst suffering from a long term depression that he has held. He suddenly felt very vulnerable; fears of both literal and metaphorical homelessness permeated his consciousness like a dense fog. He felt abandoned and at the same time felt his anguish was invisible to others. He was left with the notion that he would not have a warm happy place or future and that he would be relegated to scavenging for survival. 

This photo collection consists of images of women involved in situations in which - were they to happen in daylight, the women not naked - the scene would be routine. Naked women show the neglect and loneliness we face every day, even when we’re surrounded by people. Alec’s pictures show women living with their demons, in the company of night. 

Available for purchase here:

Please note: I will have the book available for purchase via Blurb’s bookstore for about a month and then I will move it to Amazon.  This will allow fans via social media to buy the book a lesser price than when it becomes available through Amazon (Amazon charges 15% over Blurb).

Alec Dawson
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
Never a jack-of-all and always a master. Light-bender, loud-laughter with a fanatical attachment to independence and liberty. Alec is a free spirit and crisp thinker, and he has been known to alter the space-time continuum on occasion but never admit to it under questioning. He flees from governments and the women who seek to ensnare him, and he is sometimes submersed in the deepest and least accessible parts of the world. He knows where to find the best slice of pizza the planet can produce, and the best smile a face can hold. Alec not only can see the fragility and truth of life, but he can capture it and preserve the moment for the ages.

Alec. Always larger than life, no substitutions. He comes in one flavor: straight-up.
