Adam Fuss was born in England in 1961. His father manufactured woman’s coats and his mother was an Australian fashion model.
Fuss became a distinguished artist by embracing a range of historical and contemporary photographic techniques to capture a broad set of emotion-laden subject matter. Art critics often describe the artist’s work as speaking to the ephemerality of a moment in time and life itself.
Fuss began a series of pinhole-camera images in 1984 and began exhibiting his work in 1985 at Massimo Audiello’s gallery. Fuss’s works have since been exhibited in major museums and galleries around the world. Adam Fuss is known for photographing unusual subject matter with an emphasis on composition.
