Andreas Olesen Network
My art practice is based around a study of the photographic language and process. This study is the material foundation used to create works about social and cultural environments.
Each series of work I make is a union of my inquiry and my interest in these environments. Upon selecting an idea to work with, I adopt a photographic technique and process which will relate to the theme. As an enthusiast of the hands-on photographic process, along with my strong interest in the meanings embedded in photographs, I always think about my work in a meta-narrative context; my photographs are about photography.
I was born in San Francisco in 1981. I currently live and work in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The creator of these inventive yet enigmatic images discusses the inspiration behind his re-photographing method, his deep appreciation for analog film processes and also offers some great advice for aspiring photographers. Enjoy!
