Anchorage-based photographer Brian Adams makes pictures about contemporary life in the Arctic region of North America. Informed and inspired by his own Iñupiaq heritage, Adams has traveled across Alaska and beyond to make photographs of Indigenous communities and the surrounding landscape.
Through photography and often accompanying interviews, he seeks to give a voice to the people he photographs and to share stories of endurance, change and resilience of people, cultures, and the environment. Brian Adams published his book I AM INUIT in 2017, was the recipient of a Native Arts & Cultures Foundation National Artist Fellowship in 2018, and is co-founder of Indigenous Photograph and The 400 Years Project.
