After taking his first darkroom class at age 14, Adrian has had photography

by his side since. His interests in science, technology, and drawing have led him into

the artist he is today: 1 part digital and 1 part analog. With a strong focus on 18th

century photographic processes, primarily Gum Bichromate printing – which mixes

watercolor pigment and other pigments with photochemistry, Adrian brings to life

a new medium that crosses the boundaries of drawing, painting, analog and digital

photographic mediums.

Born and raised in the Sonoran desert of Tucson, Arizona, Adrian received his

degrees in Fine and Studio arts, Visual and Performing arts, and Liberal arts and

Sciences, all with a focus in Photography at Pima College. He gained a degree in

Photography in 2015 from Temple University, Tyler School of Art. He now lives in

Philadelphia and works at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where his

role brings his expertise in Photography and Fine Art printing amongst his other

accomplished duties at the academy.
