Andy Richter is an award-winning visual artist and photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He immerses himself in his subjects and their wider context, exploring such themes as family, fatherhood, self-transformation, consciousness and spirituality with the heightened awareness that the camera brings. A storyteller at heart, he is frequently commissioned by clients who understand that authentic visual narratives inspire audiences to engage and act. Whether collaborating with a major brand, a national publication, or an international NGO, his photographs deliver a clear vision that connects.
Andy’s work has been exhibited internationally and he has received recognition from American Photography, Photolucida, the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, and the International Photography Awards, among others. He is a multiple time recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant and is a participating artist in the Hennepin Theater Trust's "It's the People" public art installation for 2021. His monograph, Serpent in the Wilderness (2018), a photographic exploration of yoga, is available for purchase directly from the artist, from Kehrer Verlag, and wherever fine books are sold. A story of commissioned photographs, along with work from the book, is featured in the January 2020 issue of National Geographic Magazine.
