Alexi Lubomirski was born in England to a Peruvian mother and a Polish father. At the age of seven, he moved to Botswana with his mother and English stepfather. It was his stepfather who gave him his first camera at the age of 11. During his teenage years at school in Oxford, Lubomirski spent his free weekends doing odd jobs waitering, gardening and bartending to save up money for travel. His serious interest in photography developed whilst traveling in Peru during a gap year at college.
His interest later shifted from social commentary to narrative based, fashion photography during his studies at the University of Brighton, in the UK. It was shortly after finishing his studies that he was introduced to Mario Testino, with whom he assisted for the next 4 years whilst living between Paris and London. Towards the end of his time with Testino, Katie Grand approached Alexi to shoot for the FACE magazine, and later for Harpers Bazaar US.
Since then Lubomirski has become an established name within the fashion industry with an impressive client list, shooting for such publications as Harpers Bazaar US, Harpers Bazaar UK, German Vogue, Russian Vogue, Spanish Vogue, GQ USA, Chinese Vogue, Vogue Nippon, China Mens Vogue and Wonderland.
He has also become a firm favorite with celebrities, and has shot cover stars such as Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Scarlett Johansson to name but a few. In 2008, Lubomirski had his first exhibition; TRANSIT, at MILK gallery in New York. A mixed media commentary on tv culture, comprised of pre conceived film stills.
He lives in New York with his wife and son.
