Andrew Bush – Vector Portraits

September 1, 2009


In 1989 Andrew Bush graduated from Yale with a MFA and headed west to Los Angeles. He spent the next eight or so years driving round car crazy LA with a custom medium format camera rig and flash set up in the passenger seat of his car.

The photographs have a uniform set up: the subjects are always the same distance and scale in each image and represent a cross section of the American public. …The essence of what makes these appealing images is that they are a prolonged version of the awkward eye contact frequently made while driving. It is undeniably voyeuristic and satisfying, and now one has the leisure to examine minutely while remaining anonymous. Bush offers up a slice of Los Angeles life at its most mundane and telling.

This Vector Portraits series will be opening at M+B gallery in LA on Saturday September 12 and will run until October 15. Andrew will be in attendance on Saturday for a book signing.
