Adam Schreiber

Adam Schreiber has a show coming up at Sasha Wolfe Gallery this March. There is not much out there about his work - but it looks pretty interesting. Like many contemporary photographers, his work seems to skirt easy definition, but seems to draw playfully on the history and multifaceted nature of the medium from corporate and scientific photography to conceptual art photography. Referring to his recent work, one press release states,

[Adam draws] much of his imagery and inspiration from the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin, a library and museum dedicated to the humanities. There, he has photographed cultural artifacts ranging from the first known photograph taken in 1826 to a variety of other industrial and historical oddities.
