MSAA features the work of many talented artists affected by multiple sclerosis as part of our annual MSAA Art Showcase. Each month we share these artists’ inspiring stories and beautiful artwork with you as our Artist of the Month. This month, we celebrate Alfred Haymond as the July Artist of the Month. Alfred is from Altadena, CA.
When asked, what’s his ardent fascination with black & white photography – Alfred Haymond readily explains, “There is just something so quaint, therapeutic, and very nostalgic about the medium.
Originally from Los Angeles, Alfred is a self-taught yet accomplished photographer whose approach is described by him as simply, “observational photography, the art of finding those mundane occurrences happening all around us and visually documenting them.”
Diagnosed with MS in 2011, Alfred decided to take a daring leap, going beyond a mere hobby to sharing his work with the greater community. Alfred reflects, “I had received some life-altering news at the time and figured I should do something meaningful with my photographs rather than let them just sit in boxes out in the garage.”
The vintage architecture, rural landscapes, intimate pictorials, street photography, and fleeting scenes of Americana are the stories poignantly and continuously told through the lens of his camera.
