An experienced freelance camera operator, filmmaker, editor & stills photographer, Adam is primarily a Sydney based cameraman but shoots worldwide, from Pacific islands to the Arctic, in between working as a multi-screen video artist.
He specialises in creative work, web documentary and multimedia video production, with an emphasis on arts, performance and environmental themes.
Adam's artistic research & practice centres on a multi-screen form he calls the video polyptych with which he explores cognitive dissonances underlying our responses to climate change. Building on his documentary background he is undertaking a PhD at the University of New South Wales' Faculty of Art & Design, exploring aesthetic visual representations of anthropogenic global warming.
His previous gallery exhibitions include Roads to Nowhere (2012), part of the Head On Photo Festival, Vivid Sydney and Rocks Pop-Up; Raise | Retreat | Rise (2013, for the Re:Cinema exhibition in New York / ISEA Sydney) & Below the Line (World Expo, Milan, 2015). Adam’s single-channel artworks include Le Violoncelle (2003), METROpolis & Camel Roundabout (2012) and his AnthropoScenes (2017-). In 2016 he was an artist in residence at La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, in 2018 in Greenland, and in 2019 at Gallery Svalbard (Longyearbyen) & SÍM Reykjavík (Iceland).
