Andrew Macpherson grew up in England’s oldest national park, the New Forest, originally established by William The Conquerer in 1079. It was here that his love of the land, and landscape photography was born.
After leaving school at fifteen to pursue his dream of becoming a photographer, he moved to London where he assisted photographers Horst. P. Horst and Lord Snowdon before becoming a photographer in his own right.
He spent the following ten years photographing fashion, traveling between London, Paris and New York for Vogue, The Face, Elle and Rolling Stone before discovering the American West.
An exhibition currently on view at the Arcane Space in Venice, California, features images taken during his personal pilgrimage into the land so beautifully documented by one of his photographic heroes, Ansel Adams. “Adams was not just a pioneer of modern American landscape photography; he was also an avid environmentalist who’s helped create many of national parks and monuments that now preserve the beauty of the American West,” he says. A tribute all in black and white.
