Andy Adams

Adams has the idea of making the internet browser a virtual gallery space, making work accessible to a wider audience than might otherwise be able to visit a gallery of prints.

Whether this is a gimmick in light of the almost ubiquitous sharing and promotional posts on social media is a debatable point.  But there are some great portraits here that I wanted to retain for future inspiration.

Adams’ subjects cover Russia and the gay community, perhaps with a homage to Tillmans in some of the work. There are also gritty monochrome images of curiosly unique people, perhaps some may say freaks and oddballs.  Like Arbus, Adams has clearly built rapport and trust with his subjects before lifting the camera to his eye.
