Adventure / Travel / Parkour / Climbing / Buildering / Lifestyle

Andy Day is an internationally published photographer specialising in adventure sports, travel, architectural and landscape photography. He has been photographing physical interaction with the city since 2003. With an MA in Photography from Goldsmiths, he also speaks, teaches and writes about visual culture and the sociology of urban space.

Through participant-observation, Andy's work examines the body’s relationship with the built environment, wilful misuse of architecture, subversive practices, appropriation of space and place, edgework and social interaction.

Andy is a proud member of the Urban Photographers Association and Crossing Lines.

Clients have included American Eagle, Ecko Unlimited, Canon, Dairy Crest, and Yota. His work has been published in magazines and newspapers around the world, including The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Stuff, Front, Zoo, and Men's Fitness.

 

Teaching / Speaking

Andy has taught short courses at Central St Martins, London, and a series of workshops for the Royal Institute of British Architects in conjunction with The Barbican. He often presents his work at academic conferences and as a guest lecturer, most recently at Urban Encounters hosted by Tate Modern and Goldsmiths, Exploring Embodied Research hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University, Lisbon Memory Symposium, and The Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati).

He is a frequent guest at parkour training events where he speaks and runs workshops on photography, urban space, and commercialisation.
