Discover what’s possible when you focus your lens beyond the surface. 

Alfie Bowen is an autism self-advocate, wildlife photographer, author, and activist based in Suffolk, England. He uses his art to highlight animal emotion and connect people with the natural world. 

At just 23 years old, Alfie was recently signed by the UK’s biggest art gallery network, Castle Fine Art. His debut collection Call of the Wild was launched earlier this year, and his first book will be released in September. The documentary An Eye for Detail tells the story of how Alfie’s passion for animals and photography helped him cope with childhood bullying. 

In this conversation, we discuss: 

Alfie growing up feeling like an alien on Earth 

His attempts at suicide

Social skills he’s had to teach himself

Feeling misunderstood

His inspiration for becoming a photographer

How nature has positively impacted his mental health

Autistic strengths related to photography

Advice for other autistic photographers
