Andy Goldsworthy

I randomly found out about Andy Goldsworthy one day when I walked into the University of Michigan art museum in Ann Arbor where I used to live. There was a temporary exhibit of his art on display and I instantly loved it.
I like how he takes natural things and manipulates them into something unique and beautiful.
The simplicity of his creations is what I enjoy most. It reminds me of things I would do as a kid but on a much grander and more intricate scale.
When most people think about nature photography they don't think of manipulating natural elements to make art. Most people think of pictures showing landscapes and animals. Andy, not only has a great first name, but has brought a different element to nature photography and art that I really appreciate.
