Andrew Shapter December 2, 2011

• February 25th, 2019

It's a sad day in the world of art, film and music. Over the weekend, one of the great ones, photographer/director, Andrew Shapter lost his battle with cancer and left this world. Andrew will be missed by so many. His artistic reach was huge and he also had such an amazing impact on so many people on a personal level. My heart and thoughts are with his wife and children, his family and his amazing collection of close friends. This conversation was from December of 2011. Andrew and I had breakfast at Curra's here in Austin and talked about his beautiful 2006 documentary, "Before The Music Dies".
