“Live in the Moment” with Artist Andy Royston a/k/a FtLauderdaleSun

FtLauderdaleSunThe debut exhibition “Live in the Moment,” features more
than a dozen prints on canvas by award-winning local artist Andy Royston.

Known to his nearly 50,000 social media followers as FtLauderdaleSun, Andy Royston is an award winning local phonography artist. Using his i-phone, a variety of apps, angles and natural lighting, Royston captures and instantaneously shares the dawn atmosphere on Fort Lauderdale Beach every single morning.

“For me, photography is not about the mechanical technology that captured it, but rather about establishing an emotional connection to each image. My aim from day one was to capture and share the moment as closely to the instant of creation as possible – so we could all live in the moment” 

Royston, originally Yorkshire England, began the FtLauderdaleSunProject in 2009.
