Wiltshire-based photographer Andy Rose has been truly bitten by the travel bug! In his exhibition with us this summer, Andy offers us glimpses of his travels across Europe, India and the Arctic. His journey throughout life has been as varied as the locations he visits each year.
After leaving school Andy trained as an engineer and spent ten years with the merchant navy – the lure of travel was too much to resist, even at a young age. Since then he has had a number of ways of earning a living – a postman, a firefighter and is now managing a rather swanky foodie-pub in Corsham.
In 2014 the opportunity arose to visit the Arctic – the images from this trip are sublime – the cold, mesmerising landscapes are blisteringly evocative and serve as a counterpoint to the images from his 2016 trip to India. The India trip was a self-imposed challenge to ‘get under the skin of Jodhpur’ and the portraits give a captivating illustration of the people and communities, the street traders and the tribes from the Thar desert.
Andy’s work reminds us that there’s no necessary requirement for formal training in the arts but that a creative mind, a good eye, some technical knowledge and a thirst to do more are essential.
