Jonathan J. Bower

Last week, I had a wonderful time photographing musician Jonathan J. Bower for an upcoming project he is working on. It was a lot of fun putting a couple rolls of black and white film through the Hasselblad, something I haven't done in a very long time and hope to do more of.

Iditarod 2017

On Saturday, I had fun running around at the Iditarod start making photos with a Hasselblad FlexBody. This year I wanted to slow down my process (even more) and try and use the FlexBody as a way to quit down my images at such a loud and fast event. The photo above is of veteran musher, Gunnar Johnson of Duluth, MN.

Standing Rock - The Black Snake

© 2016 Brian Adams

During the days immediately leading up to Thanksgiving this past year (2016), I was glued to my phone watching protesters, also called "water protectors," at Standing Rock being assaulted with tear gas, shot with rubber bullets, and sprayed with water canons the weekend before Thanksgiving. As an Inupiaq of Alaska, it felt like I was watching a family member being beaten--many family members. With the amazing help and support of my wife, we were able to get me down to the reservation by Thanksgiving Day. I spent four days at the Oceti Sakowin Camp and returned again for the Veterans march a couple weeks later. I plan to return to the camp in the near future. If you would like to see more visit my website Look for the tab “Standing Rock - The Black Snake”.

Hello! And Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2017. 2016 was a wild year. It was a really good year for photography for me, but I am looking forward to what 2017 has in store for us and the U.S.

Above are a few photos from my last rolls of film from 2016. Cheers.

Over the last few weeks, I have made a couple trips to Standing Rock in North Dakota to document and support the efforts of the protesters. I am currently working on an edit of the work, so stay tuned and sorry for the delay in updates!

The picture above was taken on December 5th, 2016. Native Americans and up to 700 veterans marched together in protest if the Dakota Access Pipeline.
