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. ┬áLike Arbus, Adams has clearly built rapport and trust with his subjects before lifting the camera to his eye.
