Light leaks are celebrated, grain is encouraged and double or triple exposures are intentional: it’s these qualities that distance Glitterdust from photography and more towards fine art.
The elusive Gutterdust has wowed fans all over since joining forces with the relentless force that is Nicce London. The alias of photographer and artist Andy Wauman, Gutterdust is a creative outlet that showcases his art in its many forms. As a 35mm junkie and avid traveller myself, Wauman’s work has been a bit of an aspiration for me.
Known for his exotic locations and gorgeous sun kissed models, Gutterdust makes a point of rejecting the regimented, air brushed approach to photography, instead embracing mistakes and anomalies whilst using film. Light leaks are celebrated, grain is encouraged and double or triple exposures are intentional: it's these qualities that distance Glitterdust from photography and more towards fine art. Andy’s solo exhibitions have been displayed in galleries all over the world and his recent show in Bali, Indonesia didn't fail to impress.
It was in Bali that Andy was commissioned by Nicce London director Mitchel Galvin-Farnol to shoot the brand’s swimsuit collection. Using his expertise in 35mm film photography, the series showcases the collection beautifully with the use of double exposure techniques. The result is a stunning set of images that are now causing some severe holiday withdrawal symptoms!
