'check yourself' - chosen by Josh Lustig, Deputy Editor of Photography, FT Weekend Magazine as one of their favourite sets of images.
"I was immediately struck by the tenderness of Andy’s photographs. He explores an emotive and fraught theme with a light touch and a clear, technically evocative, aesthetic. I was pulled into the work, finding more and more to look at the longer I spent with the images." Josh Lustig
