A collection of photographic portraits produced within the artist studio in Catford.
Adam is a portrait photographer who is currently showing a selection of his work as part of a curated exhibition at Ninth Life.
Adam’s subjects are local people with whom he has crossed paths on the Broadway, or on their daily shuffle around Catford. The environments he creates in his studio can be arbitrary or specific to the sitter; as the scene is usually set before he knows who will be sitting.
Well aware of the stigma surrounding subjects of portraiture, Adam aims to make every portrait an exchange – be it a shared experience, time, coffee or money if the sitter requests. He aims always to avoid the gaze of the photographer becoming too intrusive or objectifying, by keeping a considered and reflective approach.
