AboutWith a background in performance, choreography, and contemporary dance, Adey's photographic works study subjects such as the human body’s balance, strength, and physics. Here they photograph and portray the body in its purest form – bare, undressed, and naked. The work seeks to create a non-sexualized and open-minded representation of humankind, which is based on a dream of acceptance. A focus and attention to people’s right to differences drive the artist’s images, and here it is especially the differences that are about physics, gender, race, and sexuality. With a humorous and experimental approach, they seek to highlight our vulnerability, loneliness, and strengths, whilst capturing those little moments of social oppression, isolation, anxiety, and depression that appear to play a central role in the human condition. In practice, it is in many ways the perception of the body that is being challenged by the artist, based on their own background and experience of the human body, but it is also to a greater extent the perception of the viewer and the outside world, which is central to their artistic voice. AdeY has exhibited widely in Europe including at The Finnish Museum of Photography, Fotogalleri Vasli Souza (Sweden & Norway), and at Unseen (Amsterdam, The Netherlands). His new photo book Uncensored is published in fall 2021 to coincide with his debut USA show at Galerie XII in Los Angeles.
