Andrew Frith

Australian born, I have lived and worked on 5 continents over the past 30 years and have been involved in the creative media fields for more than 25 years.

Over the years I have shot with all types of cameras but prefer large format and often use an 8x10 camera for producing large size negatives required for many of the vintage printing processes such as platinum or albumen printing.

During the late 80's thru the mid 90's I was part of the video/performance art group Hyperdelic Video. As a Tokyo and then San Francisco based video artist in the 90' and 00's my video art was part of the electronic dance movement of that time and was widely seen in large scale club and music event environments at the time. My work was seen on MTV as the intro title sequence for the AMPED program and featured in one of the MTV music awards ceremonies in the mid 90's. My video art was included in many CD and video anthologies of that time and featured in a number of electronic music videos.

I also worked closely with many in the alternative/underground community in the United States during this time, including Timothy Leary, producing videos and real-time VJ'ing during Tim's lectures and public appearances.

My still photography has not been seen as widely. I was a founding member of the Contact Printers Guild and my platinum and AZO prints were exhibited as part of group shows that the CPG showed in several galleries in the USA in the early 2000's.
