“One thing I try to get in my photography, and what I like in photographs, is subtlety. It’s more like a good book where you see the cover and say ‘this is great,’ but then you open it up and there’s more there. It unfolds before your eyes.”

Andres has regularly photographed the sessions of the Georgia Legislature, a variety of local and national news and sporting events, including the AJC’s weeklong Super Bowl coverage. On game day, he was charged with capturing the Thunderbirds’ flyover during the national anthem. He had less than a second to get it — that’s how long the flyover was. He did get it, and that image is now in the Pentagon.
