George Zip Andre

After a long career in the skies, having served as an International airline captain, a test pilot at the edge of space, and combat in the skies over Vietnam, I am now fulfilling a long-held dream of creating art using the media of photography, concentrating on Americana and other interesting images with a touch of abstraction.

Dramatic black and whites along with vivid color is my genre.

Having had a lifetime of viewing the landscape from high above, my photographs are an effort to slow the passage of time and space, to focus on architectural details especially of those depression era structures that are - coincidentally - about my same age.

I favor black and white compositions because to me, they closely represent the feeling of times past; they also distill the compositional elements that emphasizes the play between light, shadow, shapes, patterns, and textures. The other appeal to my lens is an appreciation for the patterns and order of man-made or natural arrangements of repeated elements, symmetric or not, with a strong geometric flavor.
