Andy Hann was born in 1962 and raised primarily in Southern California. Along with skateboarding and surfing, he developed a deep passion for art and design, which he followed into art school and then a prosperous 30-year career in entertainment advertising. After numerous awards and accolades he says that he woke up one day and decided he was all done pandering to clients, picked up a camera and just started shooting. “Photography”, he says, "became like a booger I just couldn't shake".
WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD was his first series, which was followed by numerous other topics, which have won various awards published in magazines, and been shown in a number of different galleries.
Hann added; "I've grown to use my camera to try and capture other people's souls... it is the most satisfying thing I have ever done".
