Andrew Williams gets lost in America.

Andrew Williams is a hard working Brooklyn based photographer. Shooting mostly in analog medium format, Williams has a sensibility that feels like it came from a different generation. While Williams is still considerably young, his interests contrast a lot of other photographers his age coming out of the New York tri-state area. Instead of confining himself in the safety of a studio, Williams throws himself out in the American wilderness.

His project “Paradise Lost & Other Ideas of American Lostness” trades off the popular trendy snapshot aesthetic for a more sombre, thoughtful perspective. The images from the project balances a sense of idealism and menace that reveals just enough of the moments he had captured on film. The project focuses especially on how different communities all across america influence the environments that they occupy, thus, there is equal emphasis on both the landscape and the individuals. Through Wlliams’s eyes, America is vast, beautiful and more than capable of making you disappear in its expanse.
