Andrew Bennett

Submitted to: Vanity Fair

“Photography is a social art. Over the course of an afternoon, event, road trip, or concert, I get to hang out with people that have a story to tell, and capture little pieces of it with a camera. That’s why I love it.”

Three years ago, Andrew was freed from a serious addiction problem by hitting rock bottom. After seeking help and getting sober he was faced with a new challenge, how was he going to channel all of this new energy that he once numbed? Photography became one of his answers.

Mario Marino

Central to his pictures is a fascinating portraiture in which he maintains an strong connection to his subjects. Each image conveys a sense of simple joy of being and living in the world. “To me it’s essential to show the beauty and dignity of people. Empathy, instinct and walking forward is the key to my work… I try to read people’s lives, the circumstances they live. I’m fascinated by their cultural background and identity.”
