Alex Harris is one of the most important and prolific photographers living in North Carolina. He is also a nationally-recognized writer, teacher, and documentarian. Harris graduated from Yale University in 1971 and was a student of Walker Evans. His photography projects have taken him to New Mexico, North Carolina, Alaska, and Cuba, and he often photographs people in everyday scenarios while rethinking the concept of ordinariness.

Harris founded the Center for Documentary Photography at Duke University in 1980, where he currently teaches. He has exhibited at museums including the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; the International Center of Photography, New York; the Nasher Museum of Art, Durham; and the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, where his exhibition, Our Strange New Land: Photographs by Alex Harris, is currently on view.
