I like to portray my subjects as what they are rather then what I can make of them. It almost seems as if imposing myself onto an image or person would rob it of its truth.
I find pretty much anything interesting and even though I do, to a certain degree, concentrate on documenting the beauty in this world, I also like to show the dark side that looms in every one of us. I can’t quite explain my attraction to these opposites. Maybe it is the desire to show a complete picture.—Adela Holmes
Adela Holmes was born in Poland. In her late childhood, she and her family moved to Berlin, Germany. After graduating high school, she moved to the United States. While in the US, she received a BFA in Interior Design but after a few years working as a designer she switched her focus to the art world. At first she represented several artists and eventually worked for numerous art galleries.
Her attraction to the arts became clear later in life when she realized that she was an artist herself. After picking up her first 3.0 pixel camera in 2004, she has not left the house without a camera again. Now that her two children are grown, Adela pursues photography full time in Berlin and in the State of Georgia, USA.
Her latest artistic developments lead her to photographic storytelling. In the ongoing project “Hattie’s Capricious World”, Adela sequences her photographs in a way that they tell the story. This visual fable is told in parts and is very much becoming a witty fairytale for adults.
