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 and albumen printing. I was a founding member in the early 2000's of the Contact Printers Guild, a collective of large format fine art photographers who practiced alternative process printing.

Since the 2010’s I have been primarily shooting digitally and actually happily spend a lot of time in Photoshop which I do appreciate as a powerful tool that helps create the previous darkroom-like workflow.

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 music scene of that time and was widely seen in large scale club and music event environments. My work was seen on MTV as the intro sequence for the MTV program ‘AMP’ and featured in the 1995 MTV music awards. 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 public appearances.
