Recognised as one of the most talented young wildlife photographers in the scene, Alfie Bowen’s art comes from the tenderness of his soul and the sharpness of his mind, which allow him to see and appreciate details that most of us would miss. Diagnosed with autism as a child, he was bullied and ostracised in secondary school and it wasn’t until he went to CAEA (Centre Academy East Anglia) that his intelligence shined through, leaving educators open-mouthed at his abilities and skills. Obsessed with wildlife since he was a baby, the day he picked up his mum’s old compact Lumix a new universe opened for him and a genial artist was born.
