Scope and Content Note

The series consists of prints, negatives, slides, and contact sheets of photographs by Jim Alexander, as well as printed material and subject files documenting his career from circa 1960-2022. Notable subjects of Alexander's photography include music and musicians, particularly jazz musicians; Atlanta, Georgia, area politicians and public figures; the Neighborhood Arts Center (Atlanta, Georgia); protests, particular a series titled "Street Signs;" and portraiture.
