Andy G - Osher GŁnsberg....Australia's film 'Poster' boy or celebrity hipster?
I am sure that many of us Australian members would be well aware of the new reality show "Photo Finish" that is being shown on the ABC, as discussed in these two threads:
I am also sure that many of us Australian members would also be well aware that the host, Andrew GŁnsberg (or Andrew G as he was known in the 00's) was very much a big time, paparazzi hunted celebrity due to his involvement as co-host of "Australian Idol" (but his star has faded since the conclusion of that show).
It may not be immediately apparent, though, that Andrew is also a bit of a photography tragic.
From another forum, I was pointed to his Flickr page (under the name of Andrew Osher GŁnsberg) - lo and behold, it appears that he is not just a photographic tragic, but he is also a bit of a film photography tragic.
While Andrew may not be any better then you or me and while I do understand that its not uncommon for celebs to be into photography, I wonder whether its actually a good thing to have someone with a household name enjoying the same passions as us?
OR is it simply a case of another freaken hipster who has upgraded from his holga?
