When I was nine years old I saw the photos of Yousuf Karsh, and it was at that moment I fell in love with photography.  It is a love affair that has been going on over fifty years.  To do what I love — and make a living at it — makes me truly the luckiest man on Earth. Andy Katz has traveled to over 90 countries, produced fourteen books, and — thanks to the record albums covers he created for bands like the Doobie Brothers and Dan Fogelberg — has had his images seen by over 6 million people.  His work has been shown in museums and galleries around the world. “Andy Katz’ photographs have an air of quiet contemplation about them. These images are not only often beautiful; they are full of surprises. They make you want to be there; to listen, to breathe, to experience. Apart from actually standing there, these photographs are as good as it get.”– Sam Neill, Actor “Andy’s mastery of his medium, his artistry, and his dedication to his vision surely place him among America’s finest photographers.”- the late singer/songwriter, Dan Fogelberg, for whom Katz created several album covers. “Andy’s images are as evocative as cinema – every photograph tells an eloquent story.”- Audrey Wells, director of Under the Tuscan Sun
