Ralph Alphonso

Ralph Alphonso’s eyes, mind and imagination were stimulated at the age of 7, when he migrated to Australia from India. He has immersed himself in the culture and all it has to offer for the past 33 years.

Graduating from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) with a Bachelor of Arts in Photography in 1996, Ralph has spent the last 15+ years working in the commercial advertising arena, resulting in his images appearing in national campaigns including Telstra, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Coca-Cola.

His passion to capture the human form, character and condition, inspired him to shoot and curate a special photographic exhibition for the Gyuto Monks of Tibet, ‘Happiness’. This exhibition was opened in Melbourne and has since travelled with the monks to events and venues all over Australia, including the Sydney Opera House during the Dalai Llama’s visit in 2002.

Ralph is based in Melbourne, Australia and applies his commercial photographic skills to cultural and art inspired projects.
