Andy Holloway photographed the Teddy Boy culture over 6 years in pubs and clubs around the UK.
Like many photographers, I’ve been in love with the art since I was a kid. As a teenager, I borrowed the photo book Byker by Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen from my local library. Her sensitive portrait of a town and a community being torn apart opened my eyes to the possibilities of using photography to tell stories. It also ignited a lifelong passion for long-form photographic storytelling culminating in my recent six year project documenting Teddy Boy culture. I also enjoy working with sitters to create personal and incisive portraits as well as experimenting with staged story pieces.
I am sometime staff photographer for UK Rock & Roll magazine and have had work featured by the RPS.
