In 2012, he made the film "Can't stand losing you", based on his autobiography of the same name, in which an important role is played by his photography practice. The geographical locations of the shots range from the Alto Plano in Bolivia to the alleyways of the Golden Gai in Tokyo. Besides showing a preference for night-time photos, his work is characterized by a sense of intimacy and surrealism, and dynamics that can best be described as 'in media res'. With over 400 pictures from the period 1979-2018, the exhibition "A Certain Strangeness" is the first retrospective of the photographic work of Andy Summers. Part of the exhibition comprises a series of photos taken by Summers during his tours with The Police. This series is called "Let's Get Weird".
