Andrea Brough was born and raised near Buffalo’s industrial waterfront area. After studying photography at SUNY at Buffalo, she has participated in local and regional art events over the past several years. Her love of both urban and sylvan environments has created a type of schism in her work, leading to the use of several different subject matters. Andrea is now working strictly with film photography, which she believes connects the artist and the viewer to the work in a deeper way than digital processes. Andrea received the award of 1st Place in the Professional Category in the 2011 Main St Art and Music Festival in Niagara Falls, NY.
