Welcoming Andy Summers as the Honorary Guest for its debut show taking place from April 25-27, 2014 at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, CA with an exhibition titled “Mysterious Barricades,” featuring series of black and white photographs culled from the many cities Summers photographed over the past several years, from London to China. Summers will be the Guest of Honor at the Photo Independent Opening Night Preview benefitting the Los Angeles Art Association on April 25 from 7pm-10pm.

Summers cultivated his photographic practice on the road. Nights after concerts, he headed out into the hearts of Tokyo, Beijing, Singapore, London, or Rome, exploring the world with his camera in hand, capturing the unusual, the odd, the exotic, and the remarkable moment, and transforming his perception of these moments into his own artistic vision. In his unique visual interpretation, the changing environment and culture comes into focus as Andy Summers captures a raw moment, an immediate feeling, scaling the obstructing walls of culture and seeing into the essence of the other world. “My life is full of impulse and movement,” remarks Summers. “My guitar and camera are fixed instruments, the only constants in a world of change.”
