The STAT office holds an archive of historical negatives of photos of FM Alexander. You can access it by clicking on the link below:

Photo Archive

To order black and white prints of any of these photographs, you should email the office at office@stat.org.uk. The office will reply with a quote and an estimated delivery time after receiving payment (because orders are printed individually, it is unlikely that any print can be supplied for less than £15).

Jpg files of the archive photos are available to teaching members of the Society only at no cost. However, there is an administrative fee, depending on how many photos you wish us to send you. For up to six there is no charge; from seven to 12 there is a charge of £10.00 and for 13 to 20 a charge of £15.00. For more than 20 images, please contact the STAT office for information on the administrative fee.

Please email the office at office@stat.org.uk for details of availability and copyright restrictions.

When ordering prints, please state clearly:

  • the reference number of the photo(s) you want
  • the sizes of the required print(s)
  • where you want your photo(s) delivered to

The available sizes are (in inches, sizes in millimetres are approximate):

  • 7 X 5 (175mm X 125mm)
  • 8½ X 6½ (215mm X 165mm)
  • 10 X 8 (250mm X 200mm)
  • 16 X 12 (400mm X 300mm)
  • 20 X 16 (500mm X 400mm)
  • 24 X 20 (600mm X 500mm)

The negatives are old and of various size and quality and therefore not all sizes above are available for all photos.

It is a challenge to try to summarize the experience [of the Alexander Technique], as I find it (and it finds me) being the constant change, not there to be grasped. The most measureable is the sharpening of all the senses. My violinist ears react to the most subtle nuances in the sound and the experience is that of all the senses 'working' on the sound (and the means that are producing it), when I play. This has made possible the greater awareness in the moment present.
