Why did you pick this picture?
I chose this photograph because, not only is it one of my favourites, but it’s part of a series of photographs I most enjoy doing; a boy traveling the world ( sometimes with a blanket), like a wanderer without a home.
Where did the idea of this picture come from?
I love the idea of being a nomad, constantly travelling from place to place. And I feel like looking out at the world in just a blanket represents that with both a sense of wonder and vulnerability, which I myself experience while taking the photographs and being exposed to Mother Nature at her best. The idea for this photograph, and the ongoing series, really came, and comes, from that.
What does this art mean to you?
When I look at it reminds me of the morning I took it. It was freezing, windy and my hands were numb, but when the sun came up everything stilled and the forest came alive. I just stopped and stared. It makes me think of how beautiful the world can be, and I hope that feeling of wonderment passes on to whoever views it.
What more can you tell us about yourself?
My name’s Andrew, I’m at university in Lincoln studying photography and film, I love exploring places, especially at sunrise and sunset, I love reading, I love foxes, and I’m kind of quiet. The reason I like photography so much is because I often do it alone, and it lets me escape everything for a few hours, reminding me that my problems, compared to how big and beautiful the world is, aren’t that bad. It’s a very cathartic process for me, and when I get enough money I can’t wait to explore more of the world and do it in some truly amazing places.
What more can you tell us about your art?
I mainly take photographs of landscapes, nature and occasionally people. But my main passion, and goal to take more photographs of, is people and nature together.
