“I strive to balance the unbalanced mind, providing a sense of peace through the virtue of photography, and imparting human emotion through the simple power of composition, lighting and timing.”
The Artist's Invitation
Andrew C. Ko is a passionate international award-winning photographer and physician.
Andrew began pursuing photography with the realization that there are commonalities between this medium and the field of medicine in their ability to provide a sense of peace, comfort and harmony. He has always been impressed by the virtue of photography in imparting certain human emotions through the simple power of composition, lighting and timing. As an artist, he finds great satisfaction in knowing that perhaps even one of his works might produce a sense of calm and order in a world of chaos. Through his work, he strives to balance the unbalanced mind, providing a meaningful level of peace in a world often consumed by tragedy. He invites the audience to open their minds and enter the world as he sees it.
Most of Andrew's works consist of images taken not far from civilization. Most of his landscape photography contains some aspect of human activities in them, as he sees such human activities as central in providing meaning to one's environment.
In 2015, Andrew received First Place in the Architecture and Bridges category and Third Place in the Advertising Travel/Tourism category at the Moscow International Foto Awards (MIFA). He received numerous Honorable Mentions at the MIFA, the International Photography Awards, and the Prix de la Photographie Paris (PX3). His work was exhibited at the MIFA Winners Exhibition in Moscow, Russia in November 2015. In 2016, He received Third Place during the City of Laguna Beach Arts Commission Juried Fine Art Exhibition. In 2017, his work was selected by Philip Brookman, consulting curator of photography at the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, and former senior curator of photography and media arts at Corcoran Gallery of Art, for International Juried Exhibition at the Center for Photographic Art, founded by iconic artists Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock and Brett Weston in Carmel, CA. He was also a Finalist at the 2017 Siena International Photo Awards. His works are selected for John Wayne Airport Community Focus Space Solo-Style Exhibition in October 2019.
Photographer's note: I am particularly fond of the idea that I am finally transferring electronic pixels to palpable objects that I can leave behind for my three lovely daughters. These would be my simple gifts to them. If I could share the same with the rest of world, I would be that much better for it. I am also utterly indebted to my wife who always travels with me and points her finger where to shoot.
