ALEXANDER KHIMUSHIN

Photographer by soul. Adventurer by heart.

Hi, my name is Alex! I’m an independent travel photographer. 8 years ago I packed my backpack for a journey around the world. I’ve been globetrotting non-stop ever since. 84 countries, 1000s of miles of world’s toughest roads, millions of photos from most off the beaten path locations. While travel is my life, photography is my passion. And it’s never been about the money…
