Artist Statement

        My work is uncomplicated. It’s about curiosity, observation and introspection. My vision is that my work honor’s the simple, commonplace and sometimes unnoticed. Overlooked landscapes, unique structures and simple objects are my focus. 




Adam Williams is a recent graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado. During his time at the Art Institute Adam fell in love with fine art black and white photography. Learning traditional wet darkroom processes as well as the latest digital dark room techniques. Adam has chosen to merge the two worlds and now works with a hybrid Analog/digital workflow. Capturing all of his images on film and scanning them to complete the work in the digital dark room. 


Early in his career Adam has begun to receive recognition for his work. In 2013 he was nominated for the Spider awards, an international black and white photography competition. Adam was also just recently shortlisted for the fotofilmic F/F 14 juried exhibition. A competition that focuses on film photography in Vancouver, Canada. 


Years of schooling honed not only Adams technical skills but his vision for his work. Now he draws from a former career in engineering to inform his work. Picking out the unique structures and materials that can be found in the landscape, cities and his studio. Adams goal with his work is to find the simple beauty in the everyday objects and places.
