Andrew Chapman has always had a love of the old. He has a deep respect for Australian history, culture and architecture, and this respect shows in his body of work which primarily features evocative images from the heartland of Australia.
Born in 1954, Andrew studied photography at Prahran College of Advanced Education under the guidance of well-known photographers John Cato and Athol Smith. He went on to work as a newspaper photographer and afterwards, as a freelance photographer for Who Weekly, Time, Business Review Weekly, amongst others.
Andrew’s work resides in collections at The National Library in Canberra, The State Library of Victoria, The Monash Gallery of Art, The City of Montpellier in France, The Horsham Regional Gallery, The City of Knox, as well as many private collections.
Andrew’s most recent book Woolsheds was a huge success. It was only released in November 2011 but demand was so great that it has already been reprinted once. Woolsheds was featured in The Weekend Australian, The Weekly Times, The Daily Telegraph, Outback Magazine, Landline and ABC Radio National.
