Artist's statement

Spanning two years of travel across the Americas and the Caribbean, Excursions by Andrew Meredith is a photographic essay that sets the beauty of nature alongside the rawness of everyday urban and rural life.

The story began in 2008 with a meandering, unplanned road trip across Chile and Argentina. This freewheeling approach continued into the journey’s second part the following year, which saw Meredith explore Mexico, the United States and Cuba.

Often shot on the hoof, Meredith captures the sheer scale of life, whether manifested in a colossal mountain range or a sprawling cityscape, with an honesty and frankness that underpins photojournalism.

Excursions was published in the British Journal of Photography in 2008 and exhibited in group shows including in the Photofusion Gallery. In the same year the project won personal project category winner in Creative Reviews Photo Annual. In June of 2010, ‘Excursions’ was exhibited as Andrew’s first solo show at Riverside Studios in London.
