Rarely without a camera in hand, Andrew Cowen captures the ordinary and extraordinary elements of daily life - elevating the mundane to the wild, and bringing the surreal back down to earth. He documents the intricate details of his environment and the people in his life through portraiture, still life and landscape studies. His portraits are genuine and raw, creating a familiarity in his subjects and their individual stories - no matter how outlandish. His landscapes are vast and atmospheric.

Andrew’s unique gift is his diversity and ability to capture unassuming beauty, transforming even the most ordinary subject into an artistic vision.
