Don’t just observe Anna Adamo’s photographic subjects, get to know them.
Pulling buttons. Crossed arms behind the back. A septum piercing skimming the top of an ice cream cone. All details otherwise unseen become eternalized when Anna Adamo clicks the shutter-release.
With profound intensity, the Milanese photographer has a way of fast-forwarding through that limbo period between meeting and knowing a person. It’s beauty, but it’s raw, propelling onlookers into intimacy with her subjects, whether they are swingers on Bakeca (Italy’s version of Craigslist), contemporary gabbers or neighborhood kids. Each presented totally unfiltered, each bearing their total truth. So, go ahead and get to know them better.
