Drew Doggett has made a career of creating unique and visually engaging fine art photographs from travels to isolated places and cultures around the world.
His most recent collection of photographs called Omo: Expressions of a People documents the traditional peoples of the Omo Valley in Ethiopia and is the second of several upcoming expeditions he is planning over the next ten years. In 2012, this incredible and important body of work was accepted into the Smithsonian African Art Museum’s photographic archives.
In 2009, his journey to the Himalayan area of Humla, Nepal resulted in a book entitled Slow Road to China, as well as six gallery exhibitions in New York, Nashville, and Washington, D.C.
Trained in fashion photography, Doggett creates images that capture a broader definition of beauty and culture – one that speaks to worlds beyond the immediate context of his subjects. He desires to encourage viewers of all ages to find links and common ground between seemingly disparate cultures. The interaction between landscape and human physicality is a particular focus of his work.
Since 2009, Doggett has incorporated a philanthropic element into his artistic pursuits with Art Cares. Art Cares donates fifty percent of proceeds from limited edition prints and photo books to non profit, sustainable community programs focused on bringing care and services to the documented villages. Thanks to this non-profit project, proceeds from Slow Road to China have already funded a health center in rural Nepal for an entire year.
His fine art photography is part of several private collections around the world. He lives and works in New York City.
