With nearly two years in production and eight years of photo-making, I am pleased to show you the first public display of I AM ALASKAN. Scheduled to come out in September, I AM ALASKAN is a portrait book focusing on Alaskans and identity.

I have been working closely on this book with my beautiful and talented wife Ash Adams, my stylish brother Roland Adams, Greg Kimura (the man who makes things happen), the Alaska Humanities Forum, and the awesome team at UA PRESS with distribution by The University of Chicago Press Books. This book is also being made possible by a very generous grant from the Rasmuson Foundation. I can't thank them enough for everything they have done for me, my family and countless other Alaskan Artists.

For updates and behind the scenes of the making of the book, keep an eye on these blogs and other social media:
