Catherine Michele Adams


Photographer – Printer


Since 2002, Catherine Michele Adams has pursued fine art photography and printing, specializing in both digital and traditional mediums.  Much of her work is hand-printed in nineteenth-century photographic processes that have been painstakingly recreated.
Land and its value—cultural, artistic, financial—are the central themes.  From royal gardens to Frac ponds, real and imagined inhabitants of these landscapes explore the human relationship with nature, art, and aims of civilizations.
Self-taught in both photography and printing, Catherine’s artistic roots grow out of intense wanderlust and deep art historical study.  In her world, the past is always erupting in the present—so to birth something beautiful, if sometimes tragic.
