Hi! I’m Alexandra Baumgartner and currently working on projects investigating the field of political ecology.
I am interested in the entanglements of plant and human life and our responsibility towards what we call „nature“ in a time marked by ecological crisis. In my approach to photography I interwave a research-driven documentary practice, collaborative processes, and artistic exploration.

Feel free to contact me for collaborations.
