Andrew Wertz is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. His photography addresses the social landscape and built environment of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast United States with a particular attention to the Anthracite Coal Region of Pennsylvania. He speaks to the changing nature of place, identity, and the inescapable inevitabilty of loss. But also, life... he speaks to its charms. Not hopeful per se, but diligent when it comes to work.
He is the delighted father of Samuel David, and husband of Kate.
