Street photography is often associated with ideas of violence, homelessness and other sad situations and circumstances; however, Andrew Quilty's photographic work has dispelled this narrow-minded concept.

Born and raised in Australia, Andrew Quilty studied Photography at NSW Technical and Further Education Commission (TAFE) and then moved on to work for The Australian Financial Review. It was there that he not only honed his photographic skills, but also developed his unique, candid style.

Since then, Andrew Quilty has gained notoriety through his black and white images, namely his captures during the Cronulla Riots, which were published in TIME.

Yet instead of just focusing on the devastating side of humanity, Andrew Quilty's portfolio is filled with hope through fun, quirky and real imagery.
