NN & Trouble -
I haven’t submitted in ages, mainly because I’ve been off taking photographs of other people, with some minor success. But recently I’ve started shooting self-portraits again, often with this nifty Yashicamat camera, which makes doing mirror self-portraits both easier and prettier. Seeing as NN was in a sense where I got my start in this phase of my photography career, it seems only fitting that I send you one, as a way of saying thanks for the early and enthusiastic support.
This is also only the second time I’ve posted an image with my face showing anywhere on Tumblr. I spent ages being super secretive about my photography, hiding my face, using a pseudonym, and so forth, but I am done with all that now. This is me, warts and all, and I’m cool with that.

Andrew, it’s so nice to see the man behind the magic. I’ve admired your work for a while now and think it’s really cool you’re feeling comfortable enough to attach your name and face to your practice. It’s something I’ve often fantasized about doing but know I’m not ready to take that step. Your camera has a really nice quality to it and I’d love it if one day Ninja and I could be in front of the lens.
