Alexandra Silverthorne is a Washington, D.C. black and white photographer whose work has focused on social and political movements.

Silverthorne's first main works were from demonstrations in Washington and New York against the war in Iraq. In 2004, she was selected to be one of six American representatives at the 2004 World Conference Against A & H Bombs, a trip which resulted in a solo exhibit at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library in Washington. In 2005, Silverthorne received funding from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities to portray the city of Washington through its parks. Silverthorne works most often with Silver Gellatin prints, which she prints herself in a traditional wet darkroom, and has experimented with Solarisation. Silverthorne worked in color for the first time during an April 2007 trip to Ireland. A native of D.C., Silverthorne attended St. Mark's School in Southborough, Massachusetts and Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut where she majored in Government and minored in Art and Philosophy. She is currently enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at Maine College of Art in Portland, ME. Her photography can be found in the public collections of the John A. Wilson Building in Washington, DC and the Smithville Mansion Annex Art Gallery in Eastampton, NJ.
