Drew Doggett Artist Bio:
Drew Doggett has made a career of creating unique and visually engaging fine art photographs from travels to isolated cultures around the world. In 2012, Doggett traveled to Nova Scotia's remote Sable Island, often called the "˜graveyard of the Atlantic' due to its history of shipwreck. This tiny island is now home to nothing except a herd of 400 wild horses that roam freely over the it's 26 rugged miles. Depicted in his collection entitled Discovering the Horses of Sable Island is the physicality of these majestic animals and their movements as they relate to one another within their social hierarchy and with the island's constantly shifting landscape. His collection of photographs called Omo: Expressions of a People was taken of the diverse indigenous people living in the Omo valley and is the second of several upcoming expeditions he is planning over the next ten years. In particular, he highlights the everyday dress and lifestyle of these colorful and austere semi-nomadic tribes. Last year, this incredible and important body of work was accepted into the Smithsonian African Art Museum's photographic archives. Trained in fashion photography, Doggett creates images that capture a broader definition of beauty and culture - one that speaks to worlds beyond the immediate context of his subjects. He desires to encourage viewers of all ages to find links and common ground between seemingly disparate cultures. The interaction between landscape and human physicality is a particular focus of his work. His fine art photography is part of several private collections around the world. He lives and works in New York City.
