Self Portrait

Artist’s statement

The recurrent theme in my work is the ocean. The subject matter itself has been painted, written about, and expressed forevermore, almost to the point of becoming a lost pattern on the wall. Yet every time I am confronted with the vastness and conjuring presence of this gargantuan mass over the horizon, I see myself as If I were seeing it all for the first time. I keep coming back over and over, a refreshing obsession, in a life long journey trying to make sense of it all.

I have been a fine art photographer for over 25 years. My passion for photography began in high school and I went on to study photojournalism at the University of Miami in Florida. Growing up in New York City and Long island, I have always been attracted to nature and the out doors. I focus primarily on landscapes and ocean views but my work also includes portraits and still-lives. Adriana’s photographs have been exhibited in New York City, Connecticut, Florida, California, Long Island and Washington D.C. as well as in Bogota, Paris and Madrid.
