Long fascinated with the gallery and museum worlds, Andy Freeberg often turns his camera on dealers, artists, and museum guards and their interplay with the works of art themselves. His project Guardians, about women who guard the art in Russian museums, won Photolucida’s Critical Mass book award and was published in 2010; his series Art Fare was published as a monograph in 2014. Freeberg presented solo shows of Guardians at the Cantor Museum in Palo Alto, California, and at the Russian State Museum for the City of St. Petersburg. His work is in many public and private collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; George Eastman Museum, Rochester, New York; and SFMOMA. Freeberg’s work has been featured around the world in publications such as Le Monde, The Guardian, and The New Yorker. He is represented by Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, and he lives and works in the Bay Area.
