I AM ALASKAN The Exhibit at The Alaska Humanities Forum


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!

Fall is, by far, my favorite time of the year to photograph. Especially with the Hasselblad!

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!

Easton Stagger Phillips

About a month ago, I was very happy to have the opportunity to photograph the band Easton Stagger Phillips. They were in the middle of their Alaskan tour, promoting their amazing new album Resolution Road. My family and I are huge fans, so getting all three of them together, for some photos, was pretty rad. The first photo of the three, was taken at their Tap Root show. Ash and I made it a date and went and saw them, we got right up front and sang to every song ( when appropriate ). The last two were taken at Martin Severin's home in South Anchorage, it's a great place to be. To me, this is what its all about, when shooting in Anchorage, in the summers. Thanks Guys.

AFAR



In June, I went to Yelapa, Mexico to photograph one of my dearest friends wedding. Soon after I returned, AFAR contacted me looking for photos from Yelapa. Then, this month one of them ran! I love unexpected usage from personal work. Check out their write up on Yelapa here!
