Art Director Gemma Fletcher examines the work of Photographer Andy Lo Po, in the sixth installment of a series looking into new talent in photography, from recent graduates to photographers breaking into the industry...
After moving from his native Australia to the U.K, Andy Lo Po studied photography at London College of Communication, followed by a round of assisting for Nadav Kander and Spencer Murphy. In the last few years he has spent time refining his aesthetic and building an impressive body of work to launch into the industry.
With a strong focus on portraiture, alongside landscape and environmental work, Lo Po's portfolio demonstrates focus and commitment. His work combines an exciting combination of elements that articulate a fresh point of view. A carefully constructed sense of light, shadow and vibrant use of colour encapsulate his signature style, creating a visual intensity that makes his work instantly recognisable.
There is a real sensitivity to Lo Po's work - a highly considered and delicate approach, which combined with his rich aesthetic, creates portraits that are visceral in nature. His influences span everything from classic cinema, renaissance painting to masters of the medium.
His projects to date demonstrate his ability to take something familiar and breathe new life into it, such as Clowns, a series of portraits shot at the annual church service for clowns in Hackney in memory of the original English clown Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837). Likewise with his projects Tattoo and David Bowie Fans, which capture his love of characters, identity and expression.
Lo Po has a few commissions under his belt, most significantly the new Transport for London campaign commissioned by M&C Saatchi. A simple but beautifully executed campaign that comes alive with the vibrancy of his unique approach.
Recently signed by heavyweight agent Wyatt Clark Jones, he is in good company with talent including Laura Pannack and Edgar Martins both new to their roster. With some exciting new projects in the works, 2015 is set to be a very interesting year for Andy Lo Po.Read More»

And a new film from directors Hoku & Adam does it in style, with an animated A to Z of the channel's biggest moments. The film opens this week's round up of great new ads.
