HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 4.0/5.0
Rating: 4.0/5.0

He is described as a sculptor, photographer and environmentalist, but many of his art creations use materials available in any wooded area, based on a connection to nature combined with a creative soul. This is profiled in the second film about him from the same director, “Leaning Into the Wind - Andy Goldsworthy.”
