Spotlight: Adam Fuss

'Photos contain less information and create more intimacy and feeling'. -Adam Fuss

Adam Fuss is a photographer. His simple images create dreamlike and emotional responses, though they are really about survival and the delicate balance between life and death. As Phh Fine Art puts it, "[...] there are artists whose work reminds us that photography is prized equally for its ability to capture reality and to transcend that reality."

Fuss began "abusing the camera" in 1985, at age 24. His first experiments were with pinhole cameras, the method that he is still devoted to today. He is also an expert at photograms, photographs taken using light instead of a lens, usually by laying an object on top of a light sensitive paper.

If you have $4,000 that you're itching to spend, perhaps consider shelling it out on an original Adam Fuss print, sold here. You can learn more about Fuss at Phh Fine Art.
