Andrew McClees flunked photography in High School, dropped out of Drexel's business school, and eventually (maybe) completed a degree in Television Writing and Producing at Columbia College Chicago. He has worked in the film and television industry since 2014. His first publication as a photographer was "Jeani By The Hill", in Fuzz magazine, August, 2017.
McClees' work is largely critical in nature, seeking to spotlight and confront the many hypocritical or overlooked topics in modern society. Being a photographic autodidact after having failed photography when younger, his work pays little attention to conventions of style or genre, or even a specialization.
In his formal photographic art work, McClees works exclusively with film and is not committed to any particular size, material or method, except for exclusively shooting Minolta 35mm cameras for his 35mm work.
