In 2008 Alexandra founded the philanthropic GrantLOVE project that produces and sells original artworks and editions for artist projects and non-profit organizations.
Alexandra and Keanu have a history going back years and first collaborated on an adult picture book, Ode to Happiness, in 2011.

Since then, the two have been seen together in art galleries, autograph sessions, posing for Vogue Spain and even traveling to Germany to work together.
Speaking of collaboration about their second book, Grant told W Magazine, “We can spend a lot of time debating. Like, a raspberry shade? And should it be darker? We can become obsessive. ‘
Shadows is composed of dark silhouette images of Reeves created by Grant and poetry written by the Matrix actor.

Grant told the LA Times of her co-worker, “No one can move the way they can. He really is an extreme artist. That’s a big part of why those images are so interesting …
“I knew that if I moved the camera while we danced together, as a photographer and subject, we could create these beautiful optical illusions.”
The two founded X Artists’ Books in 2017, focusing on ‘unusual collaborations’ and books that’ don’t really have a place because they’re between genres. ‘
