Andrew Fedynak
Random People, Places, and Dreams


Andrew Fedynak (Hartford Art School MFA and ICP One-Year Certificate Program)
is a photographer, photobook publisher, and educator based out of Richmond,
Virginia. Formally of Asheville, North Carolina, his projects are often centered on his
personal views regarding the practice of Zen. These Fine Art Documentary
photographs are regularly found around his home in the American South, and in other
locations as moments occur. He prefers to see his finished projects in a book format,
many of which have then been published, and exhibited globally. These books reside
in the collections of many institutions such as Candela Gallery Collection, Museum of
Modern Art Library, SCAD Atlanta - ACA Library Artists' Book Collection, Virginia
Museum of Fine Art Library, Yale University - Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript
Library, and Walker Art Center Library.


Fedynak created Zatara Press in 2014 to publish uniquely designed and collaboratively
crafted “Artist’s Styled Photobooks” centered around the aesthetic design principles of
Wabi Sabi. To ZP, photobooks are poetic art objects as well as statements or
narratives. As a publisher, and photobook designer, he is called upon to review
portfolios at festivals such as Photolucida, PhotoNOLA, Medium Festival of
Photography, and Review Santa Fe as well as being a selector for contests such as
Photolucida's Critical Mass, and as a PDN 30 Nominator. Each year he continues to
design photobooks for ZP, and other publishers, while also working on his
own personal photographic projects.
