Ed McAndrews (E.M.A.) was a Los Angeles photographer whose subject of choice was Latino and Native American young men. E.M.A. created amazingly erotic, sexy, lust-filled, and classic images. His photographs conveyed traditional, playful innocents like his predecessors, Bob Mizer, Bruce of Los Angeles, Mel Roberts,
and David Hurles. Although his photos were contemporary, his usage of lighting
and sepia toning created the aura of another era. In 1997, E.M.A. was a winner
in the Tom of Finland Emerging Artist Competition and was a Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival participant.
