Holly Andres (born 1977) is an American photographer and writer based in Portland, Oregon. Andres’s work focuses on flamboyant, movie-like scenes which draw inspiration from her experiences as a child. Andres has said that she views her photo subjects as protagonists within a larger narrative. Usually, Andres’s photographs take one of two moods: either “dark and mysterious or bright and witty.”
Andres was originally trained as a painter. She earned her Bachelors in Fine Arts from The University of Montana in Painting and Drawing and her Masters in Fine Arts from Portland State University in Cinema Studies.
