Holly Andres uses photography to examine the complexities of childhood, the fleeting nature of memory, and female introspection. Typically her images rely on a tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Istanbul, Turkey and Portland, Oregon where she lives and works. Holly’s clients include Kallista, Go Veggie, New York Times Magazine, Time, Runner’s World, Popular Mechanics, Wired, Wieden + Kennedy 12, Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Portland Monthly, Exit Magazine, Art in America, Artforum, Art News, Oprah Magazine, Elle, The LA Times, Blink and Art Ltd. – which profiled her as one of 15 emerging West Coast artists under the age of 35.
Most recently Andres’s work was selected for Go West! Cutting-Edge Creatives in the United States, a book surveying the best creative minds in architecture, design, art, fashion, photography and advertising – published by German-based, DAAB Books, 2011.
