Alexandra de Steiguer is a self-taught photographer. She began making pictures more than 10 years ago while crewing aboard traditional “tall ships” engaged in ocean research and sailing school programs. During the long winter months, she is caretaker at the Isles of Shoals. This group of deserted, windswept islands lying nine miles off the New Hampshire coast is currently a featured subject of her black & white photographs.

Rock and Water No. 10Since 1994, Alexandra has been the sole proprietor of Alex de Steiguer Photography. She develops, prints and frames all her images for gallery exhibits around New England. In her application she wrote, “I also enjoy the private knowledge that the matboard edges of each piece have had the honor of being burnished with a sperm whale tooth found on a beach by my father’s father.”
