Andrew Querner in a Vancouver-based documentary and portrait photographer. His work focuses on personal response to shifts and phenomena in the socio-cultural environment. In 2013 he was chosen as a PDN 30 New & Emerging Photographer. Lone Star is his most recent project in collaboration with the Canadian humanitarian organization, Universal Outreach Foundation. The intent of this organization is to serve vulnerable children and their communities in Liberia, West Africa. In the winter of 2014 Querner made a photographic document that not only recorded aspects of their core mission in the areas of childhood education and economic development, but considered scenes that reflected on the nation's psychology in the face of its ongoing transformation.
