Maybe it was being an altar boy, or the youngest of 8 siblings, that made Andy intrigued about the many masks we wear.
From working in an investment bank to undertaking a Masters in photography at the London College of Printing, Andy has been able to inhabit different worlds at the same time.
"We're all leads in our own stories, playing out the lives we choose on the stage sets of life” he says. “ I want to quietly and democratically reveal these spaces and faces, un-peeling the layers and seeking out my own sanctuary.”
In 2020 the Alexander Turnbull Library collected his Cuba Street Portraits and Love is Understanding series to preserve in the nation's archive. In 2021 He was shortlisted for the prestigious international Architectural Photography Awards and in 2022 he was presented the Presidents award by the NZIA for his contribution to architectural photography.
His photography is held by private collectors and clients include;
