Black and White Photography by M A Andrew – Photo Gallery.
In my photography I attempt to reflect two central characteristics – fragility and ingenuity. Most of the time, one is obviously apparent and the challenge for me is to look for the other in the picture I create and the effect my photograph has on the viewer. I am drawn to the ways in which these two facets of nature have endured as a backdrop to mankind’s evolution. Black and white photography is a powerful medium with which to explore these central themes as it helps to strip out the many distractions that can prevent us from enjoying this fascinating relationship.
Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I was born in Manchester, England in 1977 and have been making photographs since I was a teenager. When digital photography came along, I was somewhat skeptical at first. The technology simply lagged behind the traditional darkroom print. However, by 2004, I had started to use a digital DSLR and today I shoot exclusively in digital.
