Learning to expose, develop, and print photographs as a teenager, Adrien spent hours making photographs of his surroundings in rural New Hampshire. Before long, he was shooting for and getting published by two local newspapers. At the same time, he was developing an interest in music, eventually studying trumpet performance at Berklee College of Music. He received a Bachelor of Music degree, magna cum laude. Since then, he rekindled his interest in photography. He has built a commercial and editorial photography business and has maintained his passion for creating and showing his artistic work.
Artist Statement: “In my portrait work, my goal is to make a connection with my subject. Creating images of a person is a process; we collaberate to create something that is part them and part me. Ideally, my images will engender a feeling or a mood in the viewer, even if those emotions are a projection of their own. My work must have an esthetic quality that attracts me as well, so my photographic style and approach is fairly traditional, using both film and digital cameras.”
