Throughout his career, Alex has always photographed portraits of people, be they for an advertising shoot, to record a new official in their robes, or simply to capture an interesting face. As part of a series for the People’s Journal, Alex photographed people at their occupations, a subject he often returned to when he became a freelance photographer.
Some images dating from mid-1966 and earlier are potentially copyright of DC Thomson & Co Ltd where Alex was employed as a staff photographer. All other images are copyright of Alex Coupar. Audio is copyright University of Dundee Archive Services. Nothing to be reproduced without permission
