Welcome to Adam Garelick Photography. I am a photographer living and working in New York City. I first picked up a camera as a high school student in Connecticut, when I took an introductory course on darkroom technique and camera operation. I quickly became fascinated by the medium, and at the time I was fortunate to live in a state with tremendous geographic diversity. Within just a few minutes drive from my home were urban centers, aging industrial towns, farms, rivers and open fields. Today, I trace my varied photographic interests to the diverse subjects I encountered while growing up in Connecticut. I return there to photograph whenever possible.
I devote most of my time to producing my own work. But I am also interested to study the work of other photographers, and to understand what they are trying to communicate through their imagery. To that end, I intend to share on these pages some of the incredible photography that I have encountered, and which has inspired me as an artist.
Ultimately, my reason for beginning this blog is simple. I believe that photographs have the potential to expand our understanding of the world, however incrementally, much like any other moment or experience we might have. That is the challenge that continually motivates me as a photographer -- to document what is meaningful to me, and then, through these pages, to share them with you, in the hopes that perhaps they will hold some small value for you, as well.
