About Andreas Olesen

The thread which runs through my work is made of an in depth study of the photographic language and process. The actual ideas I’m interested in exploring change over time, but my work keeps returning to themes based around a fascination with specific social and cultural milieus, the way technology affects us and our communication with each other, and the way we interact with photographs as historic objects.

My work is made up of distinct series. I research and develop specific ideas which I am interested in exploring as a body of work. I then adopt a technique and process which will support, expand and reference the theme I am working on. As a lover of the hands on photographic process, along with my strong interest in the meanings imbedded in photographs on their own, I always think about my work in a metanarrative context, photographs about photography.
