Andrew Doak's photographs blend the genres of still life, food photography, and self-portraiture. They fuse larger than life themes and characters with the raw material of Doak's own biography. The resulting images look at ideas of excess, fragility, and authenticity.
He has exhibited his work widely in domestic and international venues, such as London, England; Shanghai, China; Toronto, Canada; and Detroit, Michigan. Doak received a Fulbright Scholarship to Germany (2005), and was awarded the Juror's Choice Award for best two-dimensional work at ArtPrize (Grand Rapids, MI, 2010).
Doak was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, but grew up with strong ties to the Midwest. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and German from Sewanee: The University of the South and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
