Andre Wagner - Route 26
*while updating my site, I decided to use it as a time to revisit some of my old work. Here’s one of my photo stories that I shot in Storm Lake, Iowa, where I went to college at.
Rog Walker / Richard Averdon Inspired // Portrait
untitled, rog walker / creatives in my space
*creatives in my space is the name of a new portrait series i’ll be shooting over an expanded period of time. i’m excited about the studio and expanding into a new aspect of my work. of course one of my favorite photographers and brother in crime had to be the first in the space. let the fun begin!
Limited Edition Print Contest
If I were alive on August 25th in 1952, I’m sure I would have been running to the newsstand, ready to purchase a copy of LIFE Magazine featuring Gordon Parks. Gordon Parks has not only inspired me but has changed my perspective on life in and outside of photography. He knew the importance of growing as an individual was in direct proportion to finding the guiding light of art and love.
Parks knew all to well the reality of not being exposed to the culture of arts, and struggled during his early years to feed his hunger for photography. And because of this, I’ve decided for the first time to give away a couple limited edition film prints from my Emerging Man personal project. Though Gordon Parks titled his piece #EmergingMan, I believe this story applies to both men and women—anyone willing to appreciate the beautiful struggle.
There will only be two limited edition prints available (one person from the US and one person from overseas), in order to enter the contest you will have to email me your photo by Friday, Aug 17th at 12:00 PM EST. In the email you should include your own picture depicting what you translate #EmergingMan to mean. I will choose the winners and post the winning photos on my blog.
Friday the 17th will be the release of my project, Emerging Man
Your email format should be as follows…
Subject: Emerging Man Photo Contest / Your Name / Your Location
art is my weapon / love & create
turn on the news any given day and you’ll hear about another incident, another killing, and another tragedy that devastated the lives of countless families. I wake up to the sight of the american flag everyday, and envision myself as a soldier, fighting to help others through my work. I can only hope that one day people will see that there is no greater weapon than art and love.
