director of music videos, commercials, and short films in Toronto, Canada,
Andrew Thomas Hunt picked up a 1968 Polaroid Land Camera 210 at a local
pawnshop last year and started using it to shoot models. Much like at his
day job he was guided by the premise of telling a story. But photography
was and is his own thing, his means of personal expression. And instead of
shooting with the over-dramatic flair of a cinematographer he chose
instead to shoot in simple lighting conditions, without the assistance of
a make-up specialist, or stylist, or even an assistant. His goal being to
capture a truer feeling, to concentrate on the simple, honest lines and
shapes and beauty of his subjects.
Andrew's work has appeared in Photo Magazine (France) and he is preparing
for his first live exhibition in May at the Delicia Art Haus in Toronto.
