The tongue-in-cheek book was a success, prompting the poet-artist duo to create their second book together, Shadows, in 2016 with Grant photographing Reeves while filming John Wick.
Speaking of collaborating on their second book, Grant told W Magazine: & # 39; We can spend a lot of time debating. Such as: "A raspberry hue? And should it be darker?" We can become obsessive. & # 39;
Shadows is composed of dark silhouette images by Reeves made by Grant and poetry written by the Matrix actor.
Growing up: Alexandra posted photos from her childhood on Instagram, including one of her in Yucatan, Mexico in 1980

Grant told the LA Times of her employee: & # 39; Nobody can move as they can. He is a really extreme performer.
& # 39; That's a huge piece why those images are so interesting. I knew that if I moved the camera while we were dancing together, as a photographer and subject, we could create these beautiful optical illusions. & # 39;
The journalist for the piece noted that in a conversation, the two friends share an easy rapport and speak on a comfortable shorthand fed by jokes inside and knowing smiles. & # 39;

Keanu & # 39; s A-list exes and secret heartache
Keanu has always kept his personal life very private, but that has not prevented the rumor from linking with links to actresses on the A-list.
The film star has previously had dalliances with Amanda De Cadenet and Claire Forlani, but it is not known how serious he was with them.
There is also the long-standing rumor that he secretly dated his Speed co-star Sandra Bullock in the nineties after their crackling chemistry on the screen scored a hit in the register.
Friends only: the film icon has been linked to Sandra Bullock for years, of whom he said he used to be in love. Left in 1994 and right in 2006
Linked: Keanu was also spotted in the early 1990s with director Sofia Coppola, after they fell apart on the set of Bram Stoker & # 39; s Dracula
The actors both admitted that they were in love with each other while filming for the 1994 film, but insisted that they never went out.
In the 1980s, Keanu dated three years with Jill Schoelen after a meeting on the set of the 1986 film Babes in Toyland,
Keanu was also spotted in the early nineties with director Sofia Coppola, after they fell for the set of Bram Stoker & # 39; s Dracula who directed Sofia father, Francis Ford Coppola.
Reeves' most important relationship was with actress Jennifer Syme. They started dating in 1998 and in 1999 Syme became pregnant with their daughter, Ava.
Ava was tragically stillborn at eight months. In 2001, Syme drove her 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee in a row of parked cars in Los Angeles; she died immediately. She was only 28 years old at the time.
