Exploration of non-restrictive exhibitions

Introductions

I’m Andrew Kurcan, a photographer currently living and working in Denver. I’m a commercial product photographer by day, and an art addict/pusher the rest of the time.

Imagery has been my obsession for years, ever since I got my first 110 cartridge camera, and later a Polaroid instant camera. I took pictures of EVERYTHING. Seriously, I was that guy. Even then I would focus on things overlooked by my friends and family, usually with the reaction of “Why did you take a picture of that”?  As I worked my way through the arts, learning more about composition, design, staging, lighting, and production, the reactions slowly became “I never would have though to take a picture of that”… Wherever my professional pursuits in music and show production took me, a camera was always by my side.

Photography became a way for me to express not only my mood and location, but the interaction that took place at that precise and singular moment. I began to view the world around me quite differently, almost as if it was a layout spread, waiting for sections to be moved into place.  My inspiration was the spaces I lived in, existed in. When I wasn’t working, I was out shooting. When I was working, I was thinking about shooting. I was hooked.

In the past few years I decided to take a risk and try to move from an amateur to professional photographer. It’s been a wild and wonderful trip thus far, exposing me to a variety of people, situations, and places. I am in fact living my dream, and I still make sure I find time for art that is purely my own, regardless of the medium – a simple way to keep expressing myself. This project is a result of that time, an way for me to hopefully inspire a community as much as they have inspired me.

Please enjoy.

    Thank you! What a great idea! I haven’t seen any of your work yet, but will look for it, and I just think it is a wonderful kind of energy to send out!

      You are quite correct – some of the pieces had a erroneous date on them; of course a printing error on my end. I was concerned about this until I realized that even some of the pieces with correct dates came up missing in a matter of days – which is completely in the spirit of the project! 🙂
