Alix Piorun is a concert, event and travel photographer living in Brooklyn, New York. She started photographing concerts from the front row when she was in high school and continued to shoot in an official manner for various bands and outlets, and has photographed over 75 shows for CMJ. Her day job consists of being a photographer of a different sort: acquiring diagnostic images within Nuclear Medicine.
Since spending a semester in Tokyo, Japan, Alix has been interested in the world outside of the US and taken any opportunity to travel as often as possible, ideally internationally but domestically as well. She has an affinity for photographing street art, abandoned buildings, and anything colorful and out of the ordinary. These days, she writes about the unique, weird and ridiculous events she participates in throughout New York and Brooklyn, along with more photos of her travels in her blog, Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time.
Alix has also been involved with the Brooklyn Spaces project since 2011, which was published as a real life book in 2015! She spent a summer riding her moped around the borough of Brooklyn photographing almost a third of the book’s 50 spaces, along with the iconic front and back cover images. A review remarks on the book’s “enticing photographs of fascinating people and their spaces.”
In addition to photographing concerts and her travel, Alix also enjoys and is available to photograph events of every type, capturing the ambiance of the environment and attendees enjoying themselves.
Other photography clients have included Gothamist, Brooklyn Magazine, Brooklyn Historical Society, Future of Storytelling Conference, Children’s Museum of the Arts, NYC Social Sports Club, Epic Records, Warner Bros. Records Nashville, Warped Tour, V2 Records, Avex Records Japan, Pabst Blue Ribbon, World Adult Kickball Association and many varied others.
