Because of the highly accessible nature of cameras these days, it's easy to find yourself thinking that the only photos allowed in your home are those that are personal in nature. We often forget that having work from other photographers is something we are able to integrate into our personal design choices.

Patrick Andrew Adams, is a Kansas City based artist that is keeping the medium of photography alive and well. He long since been perfecting the craft of balancing light and dark to create wonderful compositions that have been enjoyed in publications such as Dwell and Review.

Patrick Andrew Adams shoots the photos you always wanted to in your minds eye. Photos that because of their color or texture, focus your attention on their simplicity.

Photos that feel familiar and are almost reminiscent of your own memories, or rather what you might like your own memories to consist of.

He spent time in New York searching through neighborhoods for abandoned bikes. Drawn to their broken down state he photographed many that he came across. These photos have been showing at a local gallery for the last two months with great reviews.

Many times his work will reflect scenes that are common in nature, although not always captured on film.

This print is from his collection titled, "Weeds+Wonders+Summer." Patrick had decided to leave his day job and have an adventure. Not having had a summer off since he was a child (like most of us) he began to draw from his childhood memories as he pieced these pieces together. The rest of the series can be found here.

We hope you enjoyed his work as much as we did, more info on Patrick Andrew Adams can be found here. Hopefully it helped you remember to think outside the family portrait when it comes to filling your frames!
