"A Certain Strangeness" Book Release March 2019 Andy Summers, former guitarist and composer of the legendary band The Police, has built a unique photographic body of work to parallel his musical oeuvre. According to Summers, these photographs constitute the mental and visual counterpart of his music, marked by a complex melodic search and harmonies of rather melancholic and even convulsive colors. Summers compares these autobiographical photographs to tearing the pages of an intimate diary and reconfiguring them into a new visual syntax. The title a Certain Strangeness is borrowed from the poet Coleridge, Summers saying that the phrase succinctly sums up the quality in a photograph that opens the eyes wide. Andy Summers has previously made several books of photography. Designed by Gilles Mora, in close collaboration with the artist, this book presents the most creative visual work of photographer/musician Andy Summers, including many unpublished images. A long autobiographical text by Summers tells of his passion for photography. A text by Gilles Mora situates Summers’s photographic work in American modernist photography. Copublication with Editions Hazan March 2019 160 pages | 10.6 x 9.5 | 184 b&w photos ISBN: 978-1-4773-1890-4 For more information: https://utpress.utexas.edu/books/mora-summers-andy-summers https://utpress.utexas.edu/books/mora-summers-andy-summers

The Gallery at Leica Store San Francisco is excited to announce upcoming events to open its next exhibition The Bones of Chuang Tzu by Andy Summers. The series, Summers interpretation of China, is to be published in an upcoming book by Steidl (2018). Andy Summers rose to fame in the 1970's and 1980's as the guitarist of the legendary award-winning band The Police and his innovative guitar sound was a key element of the band's popularity. When talking about the connection between his career in music and its influence in photography, he states, "The qualities I am looking for are musical. That is the condition. You think of music in terms of harmony, line, shape, volume, quietness, dynamics... I think all of those terms can be translated into photography."
