Biography

Andy is a British photographer based in the North West of England. He completed his undergraduate degree in 2015 through Lancaster University at Blackpool University Centre. His main photographic interest explores natural and man-made environments, and the interaction between the two with concerns over how we use the landscape and the social and political issues surrounding it. Often exploring change and human impact. He is drawn to ordinary places, seeking to find interest in everyday spaces. Within that, he seeks out themes that explore how humans identify with their surroundings and how modern infrastructure and ideology coexists with the natural world.

His work is spontaneous and involves a process of walking and investigation and is a significant factor in the creation of the work.

Andy's approach sees him working on long form, research based projects. He is currently working as a freelance photographer, splitting his time between commissioned work and developing long term bodies of work.
