Andrew Sherman

Andrew Sherman is a Wilmington, North Carolina based commercial and fine art photographer who received his MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Fall 2014. His commercial work focuses on food, architecture, and portraits and he has worked for clients such as International Paper, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Garden & Gun Magazine, and many others. His fine art work revolves around humankind’s broken relationship with their environment and his recent series, How Far We Went, features fifteen 8×10” ambrotypes that employ the honeybee as a metaphor and marker of humankind’s broken connection with the natural world. The series is currently showing in Oglethorpe Gallery in Savannah, GA until December 15th, 2014 and he is looking to actively exhibit the series throughout 2015. Today we take a look at Andrew’s series How Far We Went.

How Far We Went

“In the photographic body of work, How Far We Went, the honeybee is employed as a metaphor and marker of humankind’s broken connection with the natural world. Straightforward documents of this social insect’s declining ecosystem accompany staged images where I image a dystopian world without honeybees. Like the proverbial canary in a coal mine, the honeybee is an indicator of the ecological health of society. How Far We Went celebrates the honeybee as a vital element necessary to human life while arguing for its preservation.”
