Lycoming College is pleased to present THERE AND BACK, a solo exhibition by Andrew Stanbridge in the Digital Media Gallery at the Mass Communications building on Franklin Avenue, Williamsport, Pa. This is Stanbridge's first exhibition at the Digital Media Gallery.
Stanbridge has been hopping across the "other" pond exploring and making 'fotographs' of beaten and unbeaten streets, dirt roads and superhighways in Asia for the past 12 years. Over this time, his work has addressed many issues including westernization, post-conflict rehabilitation, little known conflicts, the sex industry, unexploded ordnance, religious oddities and environmental tragedies. This work has been published and exhibited internationally in a straight photojournalist form. When he is not in the back of pickup trucks on mining roads, gunning motor scooters through Bangkok markets or hoping for old Russian planes not to disintegrate midair, Stanbridge likes to redress his more arcane imagery with various inks, stickers and other variables he collects along the way. This often happens late at night with old friends (collaborators). In a way, he hopes that a weird 'fotograph' can go beyond the weird. In another way, he believes he's probably just dealing with PTSD.
For his exhibition at Lycoming College, Stanbridge will be showing arcane digital prints of bombs, shamans, temple paintings, army dudes and brothels amongst other things. All with a patina of other imagery to further the original oddities exposed to the camera. There will also be a two channel psychedelic bomb explosion video sequence displayed amongst the two dimensional work.
Stanbridge received his MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University in Boston, MA. In 2002, he was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Research Fellowship to continue his photographic work in Thailand. He has been the recipient of numerous grants, most notably, the Stevenson College Grant and the Elena Baskin Grant. His work has been published by Aperture, Pinhole Journal, Chiang Mai Citylife, and The International Herald Tribune. He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally.
