Maybe it was being an altar boy, or being the youngest of 8 kids, that made Andy intrigued about the many masks we wear. From working in an investment bank to undertaking an M.A. in photography at the London College of Printing, Andy was able to inhabit different worlds. We’re all leads in our own stories, playing out the lives we choose on the various stage sets of life. Andy wants to quietly and democratically reveal these spaces and faces, un-peeling the layers and seeking out his own sanctuary.
His work was recognised by the Alexander Turnbull Library in 2020 who collected his Cuba Street Portraits and Love is Understanding series to preserve in the nation’s archive.
Andy runs a podcast interviewing New Zealand photographers and supports the One Percent Collective.
