STAFF WRITER

Howdy! I'm Lexi, a photographer, graphic designer, and writer. After my husband and I restored our 1919 home in Baltimore, I developed a love of all things architectural.

As a huge nerd for post-processing and elaborate detail work, I've found great joy in the labors of love that photographing architecture demands. In my former travels around the globe as an ad agency photographer, I've fallen even further in love with the various structures and niches that AP has to offer!

Simon Devitt makes it hard not to be romantic about architecture…and art…and really, the world.

He speaks less like someone telling his process, and more like a man speaking poetry — divulging a riddle that is the secret to life itself.

In a way, it is.

There is no talk of camera kits or CaptureOne vs Lightroom or setting up compositions, but instead, how to be.
