Adam Long: The States Project: Kansas
Adam Long teaches photography courses at the University of Kansas. What strikes me most about Adam is his sensitivity. The images that he makes are born from a genuine place. His photographs of the financial district inspire empathy, but they are not without a strong sense of irony. They are both tender and critical. It is this psychological dialogue that keeps me coming back to his pictures—and I discover something new with each visit.
Adam J. Long was born in Washington state in 1978. He studied photography in Los Angeles, California (BA), Sunderland, England (MA) and Hartford, Connecticut (MFA). His photographs have been exhibited internationally and are in the permanent collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, The Hirsch Library – Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Colorado Photographic Arts Center. He currently resides in Kansas City with his wife and three children where he teaches photography.
I went downtown to file some government documents and realized that I was standing in the financial district. Something about it felt ironic – my financial situation could be better. I decided to return with my camera and it has become my Friday morning ritual. I am exploring the ebb and flow of the human experience… good days, bad days… incline, decline.
