Andrew Rovenko’s keepsake of strange times, when the big world was shut down, but many beautiful small worlds were discovered.
Andrew was Ukraine born and raised, now calling Australia home for over 17 years, and currently based in Melbourne.
Photography has always been a passion but never became a career. A stint as a freelance magazine photographer and a variety of commercial assignments over the years provided invaluable skills and experience, but could never match the fun and freedom of not having to work towards a specific goal. This eventually led to doing just personal work, primarily on film, where the joy of craftsmanship can be experienced the most.
One of such personal projects – The Rocketgirl Chronicles that was born during Melbourne’s 6th lockdown found critical acclaim and recognition around the world, with international coverage including Vogue and The Rolling Stone Magazine with the author named 2021 Australian Photographer of the Year by the Australian Photography Magazine.
