About the artist – after the jump.
Andrew has been making large format photographs for the past 10 years. Using a time-honored photographic process with large format view cameras, Andrew creates black and white silver gelatin prints that combine the virtues of the starkly literal and the rigorously abstract. Contact printed to the original size of the negatives and hand worked throughout the developing and printing process, his photographs are crisp, detailed, and intimate, fully maintaining the integrity of the negative. He focuses not on a particular subject, but instead investigates evocative forms and images that exist within the natural world, accentuating overlooked beauty and challenging the viewer’s perception of reality.
We encourage people to come and to invite anyone they feel would be interested in this type of work. All the photographs at the event are for sale to the public and light refreshments will be served. If you have any questions or would like to RSVP, please email me at [email protected] or call me at 202.701.7514.
