Photographer Holly Andres is known for her stylized cinematic scenarios often inspired by her childhood experiences.
“My work is very much in dialogue with cinema, and even when I’m asked to shoot an editorial portrait, I try to depict my subjects as though they are protagonists within a larger narrative,” the America artist told PetaPixel.
“When I gaze through the camera I try to think like a painter, though, and consider every aspect of the composition – the colors and textures of the fabrics, the value contrasts of the lighting, the position of the objects and characters, and the dynamic between the figure and ground.”
Looking her photographs is like watching a movie. Her works have appeared in galleries and museums across the globe. She earned several grants and awards and her creations are regularly featured in prominent magazines such as The New York Times Magazine, TIME, The New Yorker, and The California Sunday Magazine.
