Meet the Artist
My deepest desire is to create the most beautiful photographic fine art pictures of the most interesting people I can find – people whose openness and vulnerability create a window into the universal soul of us all. In 50 years of work I have found the most interesting people to be people who are living in extreme poverty, people who experience mental or physical illness, marginalized minorities, and children.
Andrew Kilgore is a photographer who lives and works from his home studio in Fayetteville. Originally from El Paso, he studied philosophy and theology, later joining the Peace Corps in 1966. Upon his return, he began taking photographs and developing them in a neighbor’s darkroom, where he discovered his passion. His photographic work also works in tandem with his social activism pursuits, where Andrew photographs marginalized populations to represent and emphasize each person’s humanity. His photos have a characteristic black and white style and recently has begun creating colorful, abstract compositions digitally and on canvas.
