The last couple months have been surprisingly, extremely busy for this time of year in Alaska. That being said, I am sorry for my lack of updates. But! I am happy to share a few photos from some recent trips and assignments! This month I got to photograph for a few days in Bethel, AK, Eek, AK followed by an assignment for Al Jazeera. Or vise versa? It's all kind of a blur right now. Stay tuned for more though! We aren't slowing down.

Alaskan Muslims raising the roof of state's first mosque - For Al Jazeera America

Last week, I had the great pleasure of working with Julia O'Malley on a piece for Al Jazeera America. The story was about the first Mosque being built in Alaska. I had a really wonderful time, photographing a lot of great people, working together to build the mosque. Go read the story and see the images here!

I AM ALASKAN The Exhibit at The Alaska Humanities Forum - Part 2

First of all, thanks to everyone who made it to my opening on Friday! In November of 2013, we had the first book signing and exhibit for I AM ALASKAN at the Alaska Native Arts Foundation. And on Friday, at The Alaska Humanities Forum we celebrated the I AM ALASKAN one year anniversary. For anyone that missed the opening and still want to see the exhibit, it will be on display until December, 10th. On display is 17 20x20 images and 5 35x35 images printed special just for this show. I hope you get to see it! Below is the Alaska Humanities Forum address and hours. Thanks again to everyone who came out to see the exhibit and a big thanks to Christina Barber at the Alaska Humanities Forum for putting this all together. Cheers!

I AM ALASKAN The Exhibit at The Alaska Humanities Forum - Part 1

I am happy to announce that on November 14th, The Alaska Humanities Forum will be hosting the one-year anniversary exhibit of I AM ALASKAN. I AM ALASKAN was released on October 15th, 2013, and the book's first exhibit and book signing at the Alaska Native Arts Foundation followed shortly thereafter in November 2013.

Considering that the entire project started in 2011 with a conversation with the Alaska Humanities Forum in the best restaurant in NYC, Prune , I think it's perfect that we get to celebrate the book's birthday in the place where its production began.  (If only Prune could cater in AK, it would be absolutely perfect.)

I hope you get to join us! Stay tuned for more updates on the dedicated I AM ALASKAN blog here!

Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital - Install

© 2014 Brian Adams

Some of you may remember, around this time of year, last year, I spent a lot of time up in the Barrow region. I was commissioned to photograph for the new Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital. I am so pleased to say, the images are up north and currently being installed! This weekend, I headed to Barrow and was present for the installation of the larger pieces and was also there photographing for the hospitals image bank. It was a good time. I am so happy with how the larger pieces came out, thanks to our local printers at Graphic Works and especially Victor who flew up to Barrow to install the work.  Thanks Victor! Altogether we had five large panels custom built by Graphic Works and 55 classically framed and matted pieces that were also custom built by the awesome team at Blaines Art Supply in Anchorage, AK. The amount of team work that went into this large project was amazing and I couldn't have come together so smoothly with out Barrows own Angela S. Cox and her wonderful team at ASNA. A big heart felt thank you to Angela and ASNA. Cheers!
