"The 80-page hard cover book — intended to result in 500 new child sponsors for World Vision — is far outside Andrew’s usual photographic subjects. His specialty for the past 30 years is another kind of wild life: musicians.

Andrew has shot some of the world’s biggest bands and singers, among them Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Nickelback, Avril Lavigne, Simple Plan, and his primary client since 1989, the legendary Canadian rock trio Rush. In fact, its singer-bassist, Geddy Lee, who has gone to Africa twice, was an enormous help to Andrew in planning his trip and inspired him with the personal photos he had taken." ...


... "To tie in his 30-year passion, musicians such as Geddy Lee, Michael Bublé, Annie Lennox, Bryan Adams, Fefe Dobson, Daniel Lanois, Jann Arden, Tom Cochrane, Lights, Celine Dion, Jully Black, Hedley’s Jacob Hoggard and Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson have in their words each written a poetic caption or inspirational comment based on their impression of one of the black & white photographs."
